On Friday, Dec. 4 from 8 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. in the Pub, the Office of Diversity Initiatives is hosting an Ugly Sweater Extravaganza. Students can join the festivities by participating in raffles and karaoke. They can also enjoy winter-themed refreshments such as eggnog, hot chocolate, and other treats. There will also be an ugly sweater contest so students should make sure to don their ugliest, itchiest, tinsel-iest covered seasonal wear.
The Office of Diversity will also be previewing a myriad of different winter holidays to spread awareness about winter celebrations across many cultures. They seek to spread all kinds of cheer, and after the success of last year’s event, the Office hopes for another fun celebration.
Rachel Sharpe, LGBTQ Graduate Assistant, says that this event is “a great opportunity to come together with the Office of Diversity and put studying aside.” It comes just in time for students to use it to get away from stressing out.
She continues, encouraging students to attend, stating, “It’ll be a fun event for everyone to kick off the winter holiday season. Come join us for fun and refreshments and make sure to wear an ugly sweater!”
This event can be just the fun a student needs amidst the studying and finals anxiety, and offers the campus an outlet for all their overflowing holiday zest.
