The link below is for the One Millersville Project, a joint venture of the Millersville University archives and the Department of Communication & Theatre. We are trying to compile the shared stories of the university community in whatever form of media is most meaningful to each individual. Make a video, record an audio file, write an essay or story, take a photo or create some other form of art. Just share with us something that tells your story in this time while the university, and the world, is dealing with the challenge of the Coronavirus.
