letter from the editor in chief Audrey Janette Easley

Seattle Pacific University is known far and wide to be a community of hard-working, loving, and passionate individuals. When the Coronavirus closed schools, offices, and daily activities, our community was truly shaken. Though the memories of on-campus activities may seem insignificant at the moment, we hope that through these challenging times you might find a moment to remember and hold on to them. As graduating Seniors end their years at SPU with a heavy heart, and Freshman, Sophomores, and Juniors alike mourn the loss of their spring quarter, our community has proven to be stronger than ever. In this collection, you will find memories being harshly interrupted by a change in community and culture. The beginning of this year started like any other, then changed into something unpredictable, and life-changing. Technology has gifted us the ability to be present and active in new ways. I hope this book acts as a reminder of how far we have all come since the beginning of the year. Cascade is in a truly unique position this year, and has decided to give everyone access to the 2019-2020 yearbook. Our team has worked diligently to collect all of the highlights from the year, including the truly unique spring quarter. After nearly one hundred years of tradition, we will be going digital to allow students, and faculty the ability to remember the strong and powerful community that SPU holds on its campus. We wish you all the best as you move forward in life as strong and passionate leaders.

With their consistent high scores, the team was eager to return to the USA Gymnastics Collegiate Championships. Regrettably, the cancellation of the event prevented this, but we can’t wait to root for their return next season.

COVID-19 and our community

March 9 As more and more cases appeared around the greater Seattle area, SPU decides to move classes to a remote learning format. The last weeks of winter quarter classes and finals were held online. However, spring quarter is anticipated to be held in person just a few weeks later.

zoom classes Spring quarter may have kicked off a couple weeks behind schedule, but faculty came prepared to provide the best possible remote learning for our school. Professors mapped out ways that they could best conduct their courses online through both synchronous and asynchronous learning. Zoom, an online video conferencing service, came to be a great tool for professors to connect with their students and allow their students to connect with one another as well. Although Falcons were each in their separate spaces across the world, Zoom broke down that barrier and allowed students to share a class together. Students were able to get up close and personal through the gallery view display, showing thumbnail displays of everyone on the call. Breakout rooms also allowed small groups to get together during class, evoking the feeling as if you were able to turn to your desk neighbor during class to discuss your homework. Remote learning pushed Falcons to discover their own solutions to working from home. It may have felt difficult at times, but Falcons did their best to remember that they are in this together.
