Fairhaven College Spotify Playlist
Music is bonding and exciting, so let’s unify around it! Join us as we collaboratively create a playlist commemorating our process, growth, and community. Share songs that helped you survive, feel, and exist throughout this extraordinary year! We will collect these songs from the Fairhaven community to then make a playlist on Spotify that is open for all to listen and engage with. Please send any questions to Avry Richter, KaileyDroz , or Dr. Villicana. Suggestions are welcome from all Fairhaven community members and can be made at the following link: Fairhaven Playlist Suggestions
This is the Fairhaven Playlist thus far! We'll continue adding songs as they come in.
