Holiday Open House Dec. 8 at Gateway Center


You’re Invited:


Save the date! President Laurie and Dr. Tim Nichols will host a Holiday Open House on Thursday, Dec. 8, at the Marian H. Rochelle Gateway Center for all UW employees and students, their families and members of the Laramie community.


Doors will open at 4:30 p.m., and the event will conclude with an official tree-lighting ceremony at 6:30 p.m. There will be something for all ages to enjoy as UW welcomes the holiday season.


There will be a traditional Santa Claus at the fireplace and a photographer to take photos. There will be a holiday cookie bar where guests can build their own cookies and enjoy them with a cup of hot chocolate from the hot chocolate bar, as well as many other holiday treats and activities.


UW’s jazz band, the Betty’s (UW’s female a cappella group) and the Happy Jacks (UW’s male a cappella group) will provide live musical entertainment. For the young and young at heart creative guests, there will be a coloring station, and for those with a Western spirit, UW’s own team of draft horses -- Pistol and Pete -- will provide hay wagon rides around the War Memorial Stadium parking lot.


The Nicholses will be joined by special “co-hosts” throughout the evening.


Please come join in renewing old and making new friendships as the UW community comes together to provide this special evening!
