The leaves are changing colors and the air is getting a little cooler. While people are starting to stress about shopping and cooking for the family, the mood on campus is just like the weather outside, pretty chill. As we move into the holiday season, let’s take a look at what is happening around the Cleveland University-Kansas City (CU-KC) campus.
Thanksgiving Bake Sale
Has your sweet tooth been hounding you for something tasty? Well get ready for some homemade cinnamon rolls, breads, pies and more. This is a great way to fulfill your cravings or impress your family with some homemade cooking without turning on the oven.
One of the best things about the holiday season is the giving atmosphere. Every year, Student Council and the Community Service Coordinating Committee join together for a food drive on campus. All of our students aim to fill bins with non-perishables that can be delivered to Harvesters, and ultimately, throughout the Kansas City community.
Operation Christmas Child
Can you imagine waking up on Christmas morning and not having presents? That is why the students like to get involved with Operation Christmas Child. Through this program, we aim to collect a number of gifts for children in need throughout the area. This is just another way we like to spread some Christmas cheer.
Snack Time with Santa
In the words of Buddy the Elf, “SANTA!” Who does not like decorating cookies, drinking hot cocoa, and hanging with Santa? Well, that is exactly what we do at this annual event. Bring your kids and family members and just come hangout and get into the holiday spirit!
Comfort and Joy
No matter what, the holidays do tend to get a little stressful. Well, this event is aimed to help all of us relax. Breakfast is provided, a holiday movie will be on the big screen, chair massages, and you even get a small gift. I already feel more relaxed just thinking about it.
At Cleveland, we are a lot more than just coursework. I think the reason why we are towards the top academically is because the environment here at CU-KC is pretty relaxing. So, hopefully this gives you a little insight into what we are about at CU-KC. Yes, we take our academics very seriously, but we also like to have fun and help those around us. Happy Holidays everyone! Keep an eye out for the next blog!
