Welcome Bearcats & Friends

Northwest Coronavirus Stories is an archive collecting the reactions and recollections of Northwest students, staff, faculty,  and friends of Northwest Missouri State University during the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic. It is a project of the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences at Northwest Missouri State University and is also part of the larger Northwest Stories project started in 2018, which tells the history of the University through its physical imprint.

You are creating a primary source for future scholars that will be posted publicly online and become part of Northwest’s University Archives collections.

Getting Started

To get started, you will need to complete a Participant Agreement Form. You must complete this form once in order to submit your entries.


You may come back throughout the COVID-19 pandemic to submit multiple experiences, stories, images, videos and even links to websites (like newspapers). To submit later entries, just navigate to the Entry Instructions page on the menu bar above and select the type of entry you need.

Thank you for your participation!
