Christmas on Campus: Round II
This past Sunday, the second annual Christmas on Campus event got underway here at Loyola University Chicago. Just like last year, Santa Claus made his special appearance, along with 40 Loyola student organizations. All in all, over 130 Loyola students buddied up with over 100 Chicago Public School children to tour the Gentile Center-turned-Winter Wonderland.
Among the numerous activities filling the concourse of Gentile were snowflake making with the Loyola Ultimate Frisbee team, basketball dribbling drills with the Loyola Women’s basketball team, seed planting with the Growers’ Guild, the candy cane walk with SAE and many, many more activities.
Also adding to the festivities was the Loyola break team team SCORCH, who showcased their impressive dance moves, the Sandy Pilgrims, a local Loyola band who played a combination of Christmas classics and contemporary Christmas creations and Christmas-themed Zumba.
Perhaps the highlight of the day came when all of the students, Loyola and CPS, gathered together to watch Magician Chris Bohne perform his many impressive magic tricks, including an escape from handcuffs inside a locked trunk.
All in all, everyone went home, happy if not tired, from a day of holiday activities. Many carried with them handmade creations from the day, but all carried with them memories, new friendships, and a generous Christmas spirit.
