It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! We have had the annual holiday lighting of campus, and the annual Holiday Showcase arts and crafts show is tomorrow in the Thompson Student Center ballroom. Things haven’t changed too much. The December 17, 1957 J-TAC stated:

“Christmas Decorations Adorn TSC Campus. The Christmas season found its’ way into the Tarleton State Camps last week over the campus. A lighted multi-color decoration was placed above the east gate entrance, lighted wreath burns each night in the area across from the Dining Hall, and another lighted figure is above the entrance to the Home Economics Building. Decorated Christmas trees are in the parlor of the Girls’ Dormitory, entrance to the Dining Hall, and the Registrar’s Office. “These decorations really help to create the Christmas spirit,” commented one student.”

Even the girls in the dorm got in the spirit as “Rudolph and Crew” for their 1956 Christmas party!

Check out the cleverly decorated mini-trees in the Dick Smith Library display case!
