College Women

A community-sourced archive of personal experiences and reactions to the pandemic. All members of the Bryn Mawr College community are invited and encouraged to participate. The College Archives welcomes any documentation that represents your individual experience or the experiences of your community. This could take many forms, including material you're already creating. Maybe you're keeping a journal, making art or poetry, or recording a vlog—perhaps you're turning to social media and making memes or taking photos and videos of your life to share with friends. We're interested too in stories about the impact of the shift to remote learning, instruction, and work. How has working or studying from home affected you? How are you and your friends and family keeping in touch during this period of social distancing and quarantine? Are you an essential service worker or living with someone who is unable to self-isolate? We want to hear your story. Submit material to the project here. If you have questions about the project or need assistance, please check out our FAQ or contact the College Archivist, Allison Mills.
