As another school year draws to a close, members of the University of Portland community know that this year is ending like no other year before it. Students prepare for virtual finals in the midst of the pandemic, wondering, like everyone else, "When will it end?" Life has been upended for many, but, despite it all, faculty and staff members wanted to voice reassurance. Inspired by Ben Platt and the cast of the musical Dear Evan Hansen, faculty and staff members decided to recreate the song "You Will Be Found" in honor of all the students they serve during this time.
As the end of the semester approaches, the class of 2020 gears itself up for post-graduate life. While students are preparing to launch into their careers, continue their education, or don't have any plans yet at all, every graduate faces a level of uncertainty during these unprecedented times. Video producer Taylor Ursulum has assembled a video of submissions from the staff and faculty members of UP offering words of reassurance, wisdom and well-wishes for this year's seniors.
