6 - 7:30 PM
Welcome the holidays with a traditional tree lighting ceremony, holiday music and a special visit from Santa at Jingle Jubilee. Be sure to bring your camera to capture memorable holiday photos with the costumed characters and in a fun photo booth that includes dress-up accessories and props. Festive giveaways, holiday card signing for our troops, and a magnificent tree lighting ceremony create a delightful holiday mood.
To keep things toasty, you can purchase sweet and savory treats and drinks as well as hot chocolate from the Student Union.
Admission to Jingle Jubilee is free. Be sure to dress warmly for this winter wonderland. Please note that should the event be cancelled due to inclement weather, the tree lighting only will take place the following Monday at 7 p.m.
