Merry Christmas

As a Christian university, we enjoy a wonderful freedom to celebrate Christmas as the hope it represents through the birth of our Savior.

We hope you will join us in our Christmas celebration. Whether through our daily Advent readings, wonderful School of Music performances, or events, activities and personal stories shared throughout the season, let us always remember that the birth of Jesus is the reason we celebrate.
