The Brown Undergraduate COVID-19 Archives is an ongoing project by and for Brown undergraduates, intending to document and preserve the student experience of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Its collections are meant to provide a holistic view of the student experience, especially those who are particularly affected by the virus, such as international students, UFLi students, student workers, students in the Class of 2020, and students who remained on campus. With the belief that our experiences will be useful to students and researchers in the future, our goal is to give a space for Brown students to record their community memory during this pandemic so that their voices can be heard for years to come.
To get started with the website, you can browse our individual items, our curated collections, or our interactive timeline. Come back soon, because we are adding new items every day!
