Star Trees Re-Lighting and Holiday Celebration

Join us in commemorating Willamette's 175th anniversary with a special holiday celebration hosted by the President's Office, which will bring back a proud WU tradition -- lighting the Star Trees! The celebration will include music, s'mores, cocoa and cookies. At about 7 p.m., we will count down to watch the Star Trees sparkle with holiday lights.

The evening will begin with a Holiday Dinner in Goudy Commons. Your family and friends are welcome to join us for a traditional holiday feast, served buffet style. The dinner will feature three different salads, a carving station with prime rib and turkey, roasted red potatoes, honey glazed squash and garlic roasted cauliflower.

Register for the Holiday Dinner by Monday, Nov. 27 to receive the discounted prices below (reserved for alumni, parents and WU donors). Prices at the door will be $11.75 for adults and $8.50 for children (8-13).

The celebration will conclude with a Family Holiday Concert at 7:00 p.m. in the Smith Auditorium. Enjoy beautiful music from the University Wind Ensemble, University Chamber Orchestra and Jazz Collective.
