Christmas on Campus set for Dec. 11

Some traditions never go stale and certainly Mercyhurst College’s annual “Christmas on Campus” celebration tops that list of oldies but goodies.

This year, more than 100 children from 10 area agencies will converge on the Carolyn Herrmann Student Union, each partnering with a Mercyhurst “buddy,” as they engage in a holiday extravaganza of storytelling, sing-a-long and dance performances, cookie decorating, games, lunch and, of course, a visit from Santa Claus. Thanks to the generosity of faculty, staff and administrators, each child receives a gift to take home.

The Center for Student Engagement & Leadership Development, directed by Darcey Kemp, and a steering committee of student volunteers, chaired by Lindsay Cox and Brandon Miller, plan the annual event, which takes place Saturday, Dec. 11, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Making the day possible are students from Mercyhurst’s Recognized Student Clubs/Organizations, who serve as “buddies” and conduct the games, crafts and other activities.
