89 years of tradition was illuminated last night at the Tree of Light ceremony where students of Sam Houston joined together to spread the Christmas cheer.
With candles lit, students drank hot chocolate and cider, munched on cookies, and listened to the holiday music provided by the SHSU Music Department. The Good Shepherd Mission collected cans, while organizations and members of the Sam Houston and Huntsville community trimmed the tree with ornaments. Organizations present included Pi Kappa Alpha, Sigma Sigma Sigma, Colleges Against Cancer, Alpha Lambda Delta and many more.
The night ended with the echo Jingle Bells and car keys in the air as students left with a little bit of holiday joy to lighten the stress of finals.
