An Instagram story posted on the WCUofPA Instagram on April 22, asked participants to describe the class of 2020 in one word.

We knew the class of 2020 was full of Ram Pride as the top three words are:

  • Resilient
  • Adaptable
  • Memorable

Members of the cast of "Spring Awakening," the Department of Theatre and Dance's 2020 Spring semester musical that would have opened while we've been away, wanted to share the show's final song with all of you. It's about hope, rebirth, and uncertainty in new and challenging times. Seems about right. Thank you Professor Charlie DelMarcelle and all of the students involved for bringing us this beautiful experience. Watch their beautiful performance here.
