Around this time of year places decorate with lights and greenery, put on music, and celebrate the annual holiday season. For a lot of first year college students, this means that they will be away from home for some of the festivities and traditions they might be accustomed to. My first year at RIT I ended up missing my town tree lighting, the neighborhood holiday party, and other traditions I had grown fond of.
To those holiday cheer-misters, fear not! RIT has a plethora of events and twinkle lights for you during the season. Campus provides many different opportunities for celebration. A Capella groups on campus go caroling and participate in the RIT Signer’s holiday concert every year, as well as clubs will host parties and Gift Exchanges throughout the season. Campus also decks the halls with lights and trees to keep you enwrapped in the season.
So create new traditions with friends, get involved and avoid those holiday blues!
