April 29 ‘Night Of Remembrance’ Vigil To Honor Students Who Passed Away

The University Park Undergraduate Association (UPUA) will host its annual Night of Remembrance vigil on Thursday, April 29, to honor students who passed away this year.

The vigil will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on the steps of Old Main. Participants are required to wear masks and socially distance during the event.

Attendees of the vigil will receive candles to participate in a candlelight service to remember those who have passed. The vigil will also be available to view remotely through a livestream produced by WPSU Radio.

Those wishing to attend the event in person are encouraged to register through an online form.

Last year, the event was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. So, all students who have passed over the last two years will be honored.
