Documenting the Student Experience of COVID-19

The Sarah Lawrence College Archives invited current Sarah Lawrence students, both at home and abroad, to participate in documenting their experiences living through COVID-19. We recognize that it can be difficult to fully grasp the significance of an event while it is still unfolding, but it is clear that the COVID-19 pandemic is an event of historical magnitude. The scale of its impact is wide-ranging, both geographically and socially, and it is incumbent upon archives to ensure that the historical record reflects wide-ranging experiences of this challenging time.
