The Holiday Season is Here

The Holiday Season is Here


Although we have not had much snow yet, many festivities have happened here at Loyola University to ring in the holiday spirit! When you set foot on campus, you will see tons of fresh beautiful trees decorated with lights and ornaments as well as garland and wreaths. Without a doubt, when snow comes, our campus will look so beautiful.



Last week, Loyola had their 2nd annual tree lighting in Damen! Along with the lights, Loyola students celebrated by skating on the synthetic ice rink located adjacent to the tree. Hot chocolate was served and Santa made his appearance! Holiday music was played and without a doubt, people enjoyed themselves and began to feel the spirit of Christmas. The day after that, LUC’s orchestra, jazz ensemble, and choir came together for their biggest concert, Joyola. Christmas songs were performed in unique melodies and harmonies- it is something I recommend seeing (for next year).

Throughout the week, the Student Hub, located in Sullivan Center, had free hot chocolate available to the students! The people of the Hub wanted to wish the students well as they prepared for the finals in the upcoming week.

On the weekend, Polar Palooza kicked off the holiday season by offering the residents of Rogers Park (and the general public), more synthetic ice skating, live music, hot chocolate, and a variety of vendors selling holiday nick-naks and food (of course).

There’s a lot of fun things that happen around Loyola University! There’s always something to do and keep you on your feet and enjoying yourself. You’ll never get bored living in the city and the things that happen around Loyola University Chicago!
