Grad Student Early Holiday Dinner

Grads and Young Adults are invited to enjoy great food, good company and lots of fun as we celebrate the Advent Season. The Festive FREE DINNER begins at 8:30pm in the Common Room located on the 3rd floor at Old Union. Bring a "White Elephant" gift for the exchange*. Continue the celebration as we walk over for the Early Holiday Liturgy. Feel free to bring friends and family to this festive celebration.


A white elephant gift exchange is the opportunity to take part in the holiday gift-giving tradition. The key is to have fun with it, and think a bit outside the box. Participation takes just three easy steps. (1) Either purchase something, costing at most $5, or recycle that gift that just wasn't right for you. It can be something useful, or not so much... You never know what will be considered useful by someone else. (2) Wrap it in a deceivingly clever way, such that there are no clues as to what is inside. (3) Bring it to dinner , the rest will be explained there.
