USM ‘lights the way’ for the 25th time
HATTIESBURG, Miss. (WDAM) - The University of Southern Mississippi is officially in the holiday spirit.
USM’s Student Government Association hosted the “Lighting the Way for the Holidays” event, which lit up campus with a 30-foot Christmas tree comprised of more than 17,000 lights.
In addition to the tree, the university had a cider bar, hot chocolate, pictures with Santa and a showing of “The Grinch.”
“It usually is the beginning of their finals week,” said USM coordinator of traditions Caroline Carney. “They start finals shortly after. So, it is a nice reprieve from the hectic studying and cramming for finals.”
The tree will be lit up throughout the holiday season on the administration building’s southside lawn.
