12/17/15 | As the entire Johnson & Wales University community heads into a much-welcomed holiday break, we’d like to give thanks for a successful year.
We asked Wildcat Willie and a choral supergroup made up of members of the JWU Players and the JWU Vocal Ensemble to set a festive mood with a special JWU version of “Winter Wonderland.”
Take it away, #JWUCats! (We think you totally knocked this one out of the park.)
