The only semester these students know

In August, I gave disposable film cameras to 12 University of Missouri freshman journalism students and asked them to tell the story of fall 2020 for themselves. They gave the Columbia Missourian their visual diaries of the only semester they know — a semester during a pandemic. 

In addition to writing their own captions, each student wrote a short text piece about their emotions and experiences throughout the semester.
