Abstract

The Ram Stories project records, collects for researchers, and shares with the university community at least 200 student and alumni interviews about COVID-19’s effect on students at Colorado State University. These interviews promote a broad understanding of the pandemic’s impacts by producing a record of individual and collective experiences.

The project illuminates the impact of the pandemic on students’ physical and mental health, their families and communities, and their values and identities. The project will also capture CSU’s dynamic response to the pandemic and concerted efforts to support and sustain the wellbeing of its students. The goal of this oral history project is to help the university community prepare for, and respond to, other world-changing events.

The collection consists of audio and video oral histories of students and alumni and is an ongoing project with new interviews being added. The recordings are available in CSU's institutional repository, Mountain Scholar.
