December's word-of-the-month is caring. This month, we're caring a lot about finals and getting our students home safely for the holidays. We're so thankful to our faculty and staff for serving and caring for students this past term.
Thanks to all who came out for the Student Government Association Holiday Party. And thanks to Student Development for helping students make it through finals with special treats, like the annual Late Night Breakfast. Click on the photos below to see more. 

We wish you a wonderful holiday season, a happy New Year, and lots of time with the people you love most.
