‘Tis the season for Christmas parties! In the dorms, students celebrated with gift exchanges.

In the women’s dorm, the gift exchange came as the culmination of a semester-long “secret sisters” program. At the beginning of the year, girls drew names and surreptitiously slipped notes of encouragement a small gifts to the person chosen. At the gift exchange, each described their “secret sister” before revealing the name and giving them a gift.

In the men’s dorm, the gift exchange included a white-elephant gift game, during which students in their turn had the option of opening a gift or exchanging the gift of another already opened. Gifts ranched from Rubiks cubes to ramen noodles to rear-view mirrors.

We had a lot of fun and hope you have a merry Christmas too. Enjoy the pictures!
