Coronavirus, CMU, & WRCT

March 15, 2020

In response to the Coronavirus pandemic, Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) has switched to distance/online instruction and implemented other policies to curtail the spread of this illness. WRCT will remain on the air, but we are making some changes to comply with CMU’s policies.
