Vassar on the Front Lines

Voices from a Pandemic


From the earliest days, members of the greater Vassar community have been on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic. In this ongoing project, they contribute first-hand narratives of precarious moments in time during a still-unfolding story. We are deeply grateful to all who have shared their accounts to date, and encourage you to return to the site to view additional testimonies as they continue to be added.

With the pandemic raging unabated in the U.S., the definition of the front lines is expanding. Have you or a family member become ill? Are you a teacher contemplating a return to school? A homeschooling parent? A business owner affected by the shutdowns? An essential worker? We invite you to share your own experience here.
