Christmas on Campus

Hi Everyone!

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving, and got some great Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping deals!
Since it is the week before final exams, it is quite busy on campus for most students.
The week before finals is usually filled with final papers and projects due–not to mention this is also the time when you should begin studying for your finals, so you are not cramming at the last minute.

With all the exciting events going on around campus, getting anything productive done is quite a task that takes a lot of self-direction. Christmas time on campus is always filled with a lot of holiday parties held by different groups on campus, and who doesn’t like to make holiday crafts and get free hot chocolate? These are hosted by a different group almost every night of the week in December–there is always something going on this time of year!

One of my favorite things about New Concord is the annual Christmas parade that takes place on Main Street. Local and surrounding businesses put on a parade and march down Main Street while Christmas lights and music fill the air. But make sure you stick around and walk the streets and stop in the local businesses because they almost all offer hot chocolate, cookies and good conversation! This is something that I do not see a lot of students at (I think a lot of students don’t know about this going on), but it is such a good way to begin the Holiday Season and share this spirit with others in the community around you.

Vespers is another one of my favorite traditions here at Muskingum. Every year, the Sunday before finals the different choral groups here at Muskingum put on a beautiful evening service filled with Christmas music and scripture. This is a great way to take a break from studying and take a few hours to relax and appreciate the upcoming Christmas season while you are buried deep within your textbooks the next few days.

A campus favorite is the Late Night Finals Breakfast. This takes place on the Monday of finals week. At about 9 p.m. students begin lining up outside of the dining hall door to be first through the line at 10 p.m. for eggs, French toast sticks, sausage, crepes and donuts galore! This is a great chance to not only get a lot of free food, but a good time to take a break from studying and have a good time with your friends! And let’s be real–who doesn’t love breakfast food?!

So that’s what is going on up here at the beautiful hills of Muskingum University!
Have a great weekend!
