WVU Community COVID-19 Stories

In an effort to capture and preserve the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our community, the West Virginia and Regional History Center is asking for volunteers to document their experiences of this extraordinary time. The WVRHC is inviting WVU students, faculty, and staff of all campuses and WVU Medicine to submit open and honest personal accounts of their lives during the coronavirus outbreak of 2019/2020. These accounts, be they diaries, audio recordings, photographs, or scrapbooks, will help future generations understand the effect the pandemic had on our community. We will accept physical materials, so don’t let format constrain your creativity!

We're grateful for those willing to share their stories. Have a couple of things you'd like to submit? Use our Quick Submit form to upload your digital material.

To learn more about the project or to get some inspiration, please visit our Stories Guide.

Please remember that if you're struggling, you can reach a trained counselor through the Crisis Text Line by texting WVU to 74174. It is free, confidential, and available 24/7. You can find out more information about the Carruth Center here.

Many thanks to the WVU Humanities Center for thier support of this project.
