The cover of the fall 2020 edition of the Western Carolina University Magazine provides
a small portrait of the many ways the COVID-19 global pandemic has affected our faculty,
staff and students.
While in-front of the camera, we asked "how has COVID-19 and the civil unrest affected you and your community?" Which elicited the moments you see captured here.
Inside this issue of the WCU Magazine, we take a look at how our Catamount community displayed innovation, creativeness and a willingness to support Western North Carolina during a time of great adversity.
