‘Tis the Season!

Hi there and hello! The Christmas season is upon us and is definitely in full force here at The Woods! Everyone is super excited for Santa to come visit, so we students are busy doing lots of fun activities to get in the Christmas spirit!

One of the great pluses about being involved in different organizations on campus is attending all the great holiday parties at the end of the year! Phonathon is one of my campus jobs where I get to work with about twenty other fabulous people and call alumni and chat with them about their experience at WWU.

This year, as always, we had a Christmas party at our boss Sharon’s house, complete with yummy spaghetti prepared by her husband, delicious cookie treats and, of course, a White Elephant gift exchange!

The whole point of White Elephant is to bring something you either already have or that is on the silly side. This year’s gifts were especially interesting, with people bringing everything from embroidered toilet paper to a gingerbread house kit.

Who wouldn't want to work with this motley crew? 🙂

The LEAD program is also a great place to find some Christmas joy. One of the groups I’m involved with, Student Alumni Council, sponsored a LEAD event where students could come make Christmas cards for residents in a local nursing home. We collected over 100 cards and even made it on our school’s news website, The Talon!

Crafting time!

After all the cards had been made, members of Student Alumni Council went to the nursing home and delivered the cards to the residents. It was so much fun to see them smile! And the best part of it all? We sang Christmas carols with them afterwards! How fun is that? 🙂

Can't you just hear those golden pipes?!

The First Impressions Show Choir held their annual Holiday Concert not only for us students, but also for members of the Fulton community. It was very well done and even included performers from a local dance company!

We wish you a Merry Christmas, too!

No matter what else is happening on campus, I know I can always count on my sorority sisters for some Christmas entertainment. Every year we decorate our house and have a Secret Santa party before everyone leaves for break. It’s so much fun to play Santa for each other and see what kinds of gifts everyone receives.

Time for snuggles in the foyer! 🙂

Looks like we were all good girls this year!

Something exciting that happened this year was a visit from Santa himself! One of my American Sign Language lab tutors, Brad, dressed up as ‘ol Kris Kringle, came over to our house during one of our chapter events and took silly pictures with everyone. It was so much fun to pretend to be a kid again! 🙂

Much love from Santa and my sissies!

Now that the semester is winding down, I’m definitely excited to go home and spend the rest of the holiday season with my family, but I can’t say I won’t miss my crazy peeps here at The Woods! No matter if I’m at a Christmas party, a holiday-inspired LEAD event or just hanging at the house with my sorority sisters, I know I’ll never be bored!

Finals are coming up very quickly, so I’d better get to studying for all my tests! Eek! (Wish me luck!) I hope your final weeks of classes aren’t too crazy and you rock your finals! You can do it, I know it!

As always, smiles and sunshine! 🙂
