Happy December, everyone!
Just like that, the fall semester is almost done! The school year is almost done and LUC students are finally starting to feel the Christmas spirit. When students came back from Thanksgiving break, they were welcomed by a huge 25 foot decorated Christmas tree, lit-up garland on the ledges of the stairway, giant Christmas wreaths, and tons of classical holiday music playing in the background in the Damen Student Center. On Tuesday, we had our annual Christmas tree lighting including pictures with Santa, chocolate fountains, and an ice-skating rink- yes, you heard me right- an ice skating rink.
Along with that, LSC is slowly becoming a winter wonderland with festive decorations all over. The large flower pots near the Information Commons have been designed with tons of evergreen branches, ornaments, and other things. Between Mundelien and Piper Hall, there is a real, lit-up, and decorated 15 foot tree!
Still not quite in the holiday spirit yet? Come listen to Christmas music by LUC’s Chamber Choir, Jazz Ensemble, Symphony Orchestra, University Chorale, Wind Ensemble, & Percussion Ensemble. This is a wonderful event put on by the music department that is scheduled for December 7th at 7:30pm in the Mundelien Auditorium.
The life-size Nativity Scene is also starting to go up in front of Mundelien. I like it because it isn’t in one area, but stretched out from the front of the building all the way to the front of Piper Hall. It’s cool to walk through the scene on my walks to Sullivan Center!
Go out and enjoy the holidays! It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
