This non-denominational Tree Lighting
Ceremony, started by students in 1988, is a Skidmore tradition that
marks the start of the holiday season, and the Junior Ring Weekend. The
Skidmore Alumni Association is excited to once again be partnering with
the Student Government Association on this student-run event. We are
happy to invite area alumni and friends to join the celebration. Enjoy
hot cocoa and other refreshments, performances by various student
a-cappella groups and conversations with current students. Spouses,
guests and family members are welcome.We invite you to bring an ornament of your
choosing to contribute to the live tree that will be on display on Case
Green. Following the holiday season, the tree will be planted in a
permanent location on the Skidmore campus in an effort to support
Skidmore’s sustainability initiative.
