Campus Holiday Open House Dec. 5

Join the Spartan community at the Alumni House for an afternoon of food, music, and cheer. Make sure to bring a non-perishable food item, to donate to the Spartan Open Pantry. The open house will run 2-4 p.m.

A special treat just before the open house: Help UNCG’s Grounds crew plant two new trees in Foust Park! From 1 to 2 p.m., Assistant Director of Grounds and certified arborist Andy Currin will be on hand at Foust Park (in front of the Alumni House) to talk about the trees in the beautiful park and to answer your questions about UNCG’s Tree Campus USA distinction.

Later in the day, UNCG will host another campus tradition. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the UNCG luminaires, which have provided a warm glow throughout campus on the evening of Reading Day since 1969. (See UNCG Archives’ story about the tradition’s origin.)

Additionally, the Vacc Bell Tower will be decked out for the holidays that evening – and throughout the month.
