With the heritage side of campus decorated with Christmas lights and luminaries lining the streets, Lindenwood welcomed students and the public to celebrate the annual Christmas Walk Sunday from 4-7 p.m.

The Christmas Walk has been held for over three decades, but this year’s event was the first to be coordinated by Student Involvement.

In the McCluer Hall lounge, children could meet a Santa Claus, and outside, people could take pictures with a reindeer. Visitors could also bring a toy to the gift wrap station in McCluer to be donated to charity.  

The gazebo was the site of Christmas karaoke, and the Pavilion contained a Kwanzaa booth hosted by the Black Student Union and a giving tree from Student Involvement.  More crafts and activities were located in the buildings surrounding the quad.
