A Wondrous Winter

A Sneak Peek at Lynn University’s December Events

By Nick Blanchette, Staff Writer

With December just around the corner, Lynn University students can look forward to a handful of winter-themed events hosted on campus.

While completing their final classes of the semester, participating in events hosted by the Center for Student Involvement and various student clubs can be a great way to take a break from schoolwork. Such events can be found on the CampusGroups mobile app, which allows students to view a calendar of upcoming events.

There are also other and more traditional ways of discovering available activities.

“I find out about events through the posters in my dorm building, Blueprint and friends,” said Kiera Howard, a Lynn junior.

Perhaps one of the most notable events of December is Winter Fest. The week-long celebration features several smaller attractions, such as snow slides, food trucks and arts and crafts. An official list of this year’s activities will become available within the coming month on the CampusGroups and Blueprint apps.

“My favorite December event is probably the whole of Winter Fest,” said Howard. “I really have enjoyed seeing what they put together every year.” 

On Dec. 3, there are two activities students can enjoy. Hot Cocoa and Cozy Nightwill be hosted by Housing. The event will be held in Elaine’s and offers an excellent opportunity for students to receive free hot cocoa during the cool winter season. The more energetic Winter Dance will be hosted by the Alpha Phi Delta fraternity in Elaine’s on Dec. 9.

“My favorite thing about events on campus is probably the free food,” said Howard.

Holiday treats, including Lynn’s annual Gingerbread Holiday Concert performed by the Conservatory on Dec 10 and Breakfast with Santa, facilitate Lynn faculty, staff and their families coming together to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year.

Whether it be the holiday-themed activities of Winter Fest or the seasonal treats offered by student clubs or Lynn Housing, the plethora of events available in December will help students de-stress during finals and enjoy the holiday season.
