Help us document this semester at Macalester

The Macalester College Archives is looking for items that reflect your personal and candid experiences. We hope to share and preserve stories and images of how the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting the Macalester community. It is easy to capture official college communications, but more difficult to archive individual experiences and narratives. How will future Mac community members understand the extraordinary changes that have taken place across campus? How will those of use grappling with these changes remember them down the road? Contribute your stories, notes, images, video, social media, emails, etc. Contact archives@macalester.edu if you have questions.


We know that this pandemic is affecting everyone in numerous ways. If you are in need of support, various resources are available via this Services and Support page.
