Share and Preserve Your Experiences during the COVID-19 Pandemic

Not sure what to share?

We've created some prompts to help you get started.

  • How has the pandemic and stay-at-home order impacted you? Your work? Your education? Your research? Your daily life? Your family?
  • What was your initial reaction to Northwestern's shift to remote learning and work and Illinois' stay-at-home order? Has it changed?
  • How have you been involved in the response to COVID-19 on campus? In your research? In your community? In your work?
  • What role is technology playing in your life right now?
  • What precautions against the virus have you been taking? How have they affected your life?
  • Where are you living during the pandemic? What is it like?
  • What have you been doing to cope with this situation? (cooking, taking up new hobbies, watching TV, making art, etc.)
  • Share screenshots of your social media posts, and use them to inspire a longer written piece.
