    On the night of November 29th, more than 20 physically or mentally challenged students of Soochow University impressed audiences at Wangxing Square in a music gathering of ”The Resource Room’s Night.” An audience of over 100 SCU students, faculty and staff were fully entertained not only by the dance from the mascot Bravo and SCU President Wei-Ta Pan but also by the wonderful music performances from these special but talented students.

    Fitting the event title and its spirit of ‘’Let’s Rock! For Your Dreams!”, President Pan hoped “every physically and mentally challenged student in SCU could complete higher education on his or her own, and make his or her name known to the world.” He showed the popular shoulder dance together with Bravo, the beloved mascot of Taipei City Government, who were invited as a guest to cheer up for the performing students.

    This tailor-made concert given by physically and mentally challenged students provided them an opportunity to show their music talents. Yao Wen-Shu, Director of SCU Health and Counseling Center, said “the aim of this event is to help these challenged students express their inner self and show their efforts.”

    From hosting the show to playing instruments and singing, these students had taken charge of everything, bringing the audience an extraordinary feast for their ears. Wonderful performances of guitar, piano, Taiko drums and vocals filled the night with pleasant music and won big applause from the audience.

    “I hope that more SCU students can interact with physically and mentally challenged students, and learn more about SCU Resource Room through this event,” said Shih-Peng Wang, one of the show hosts and the performers. Currently there are 136 challenged students enrolled in Soochow University.
