In addition to the tree lights being turned on for the first time, the event includes cookies, hot chocolate and other holiday refreshments; carolers; remarks from the Associated Student Government President, Graduate Student Council Chair, Student Bar Association President and President James T. Harris; and an interfaith blessing of the tree.

No RSVP is necessary. All are welcome.
