The Tennessee Tech University Archives is documenting, preserving, and making accessible the experiences of the university community and the Upper Cumberland following the March 3rd tornadoes and during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Archives is already collecting the official response of the university to the pandemic and tornado, but the nature of university records neglects the personal experiences of people like you! Future researchers will value documentation of the day-to-day lives of people during the pandemic, no matter how mundane it might feel now.
The Archives encourages students, faculty, staff, alumni, and residents of the Upper Cumberland to submit written, visual, audio, or video documentation of their experiences during the pandemic. There are no requirements for style, spelling, or grammar. The Archives will accept materials in any language. Participants are welcome to document what they wish as it relates to their life following the tornado and during the pandemic.
