Grad Student White Elephant Gift Exchange

  • Old Union Common Room (3rd floor) 520 Lasuen Mall Stanford, CA, 94305 United States (map)

Grad Students and Young Adults are invited to enjoy food, good company and lots of fun as we celebrate the Advent Season. The festive dinner begins at 8:00pm in the Common Room located on the 3rd floor at Old Union. Bring a “White Elephant” gift for the exchange*

*SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT WHITE ELEPHANT GIFTS: 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 no more than $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.
