Coronavirus: Archiving Your Story

Document your experience of the COVID-19 pandemic

Like so many around the world, students, faculty, staff, and the whole of the Providence College community are living in the midst of an historic crisis. Historians will want to know how we lived and experienced the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The experiences of everyday people are essential to understanding the past, and this moment in our lives is no different.

The Providence College Archives and Special Collections invites members of the college community to document their experience. This can be in the form of a journal/diary, artwork, poetry, stories, oral history interviews, video, etc. These will all be personal reflections and the focus is on self-expression and a willingness to share.
