Alumni, sisters, faculty, staff, students, friends, and family members are invited to celebrate the Christmas season with a tree lighting ceremony at Madeleine Hall on Dec. 6 at 7 p.m. "This event has quickly become very popular for alumni and friends of all ages," says Director of Alumni Relations and Special Events Mary Bollinger. "It provides an opportunity to come together early in the Christmas season and to celebrate as a community."
Displayed on the front lawn of Madeleine Hall, the tree remains lit each night throughout the Christmas season and the New Year. The evening includes photos with Santa from 6 to 7 p.m., as well as musical performances. Registration is available online at
