University employees extended season's greetings to colleagues and friends today at the second annual Holiday Open House.

This morning's gathering in Convocation Hall drew large numbers from all areas of campus. Many enjoying the festive season remarked that they appreciated the opportunity to personally exchange holiday greetings. Employees at the courthouse enjoyed a similar gathering this afternoon.

This is the second annual Holiday Open House sponsored by senior management. The campus event featured a colourful and tasty smorgasboard of foods, holiday music and greetings from Santa's helpers(senior administrators wearing decorative headbands resembling reindeer antlers).
