Harding University brightens up the holiday season
SEARCY, Ark. — Harding University students, faculty and staff will kick off the holiday season Monday, Nov. 29, 2010, at 6 p.m. for the annual Christmas lighting ceremony on the front lawn in the quadrangle near the American Heritage Center.
President David B. Burks will lead the crowd in a countdown at the end of which 85,000 LED lights will illuminate the campus.
Preparations for the event have been underway since October when the physical resources department began hanging lights throughout campus. In addition, Green Keepers Garden Club, along with student volunteers, has spent the past several weeks refurbishing more than 600 wreaths, flags and other holiday decorations.
The lights will remain on into the new year, and Arkansans are encouraged to add the campus to their lists of light displays they enjoy with family and friends this season.
There are plenty of events happening on campus this holiday season. From concerts to plays, the whole family can enjoy Christmas at Harding. For more information, visitwww.harding.edu/calendar or follow us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/searcy and Twitter @HardingU.
