Christmas Tree Lighting
Friday, December 4 | 6:00pm
Regents Terrace
It’s one of LMU’s grandest traditions – just before the start of final exams, students and community members gather on Regents Terrace amidst a “snow” storm, and celebrate togetherness at the annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony. Community Relations will host a table complete with hot chocolate, gingerbread men decorating, and a stock of holiday mugs set aside specifically for neighbors. There will also be additional crafts and activities for children, so bring your families and friends and stop by!
