CCPA Student Fellows Helena Burns and Paget Smith, and SMU PRSSA president Hayley Reardon will take over the CCPA Instagram tonight 7-8 pm during the SMU Celebration of Lights. Visit CCPA_SMU on Instagram early as our CCPA students mingle in the crowd looking for fun and craziness, then stay for all the fun. Ho, Ho, Ho. At the Celebration of lights, there's singing and carols, hot cocoa, hot cider, and warm cookies. Then SMU President, Gerald Turner, reads the Christmas Story from his family Bible. Just a hint, brush up on your Silent Night. So bundle up, come and enjoy this favorite annual holiday event, sponsored by the SMU Student Foundation and add your Instagram and Snapchat posts. We'll be watching.
My dear students, colleagues and friends, We each have much for which to be thankful. For many it’s family, or special someones, loving pets and great friends. And each of us lives in a sea of knowledge and opportunity for which we should give eternal thanks. Please be most careful if you travel. Deep breath to calm nerves. Listen to your music and let stresses melt away. Relax, enjoy and return to us safely. Have a joyous Thanksgiving. Yours faithfully, Sandra Duhe
