The community was invited to join Jackson State University on Dec. 3 for “Holidays Under the Stars,” an event featuring train rides, refreshments and family activities with Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus.
JSU’s Gibbs-Green Plaza became a holiday wonderland on Dec. 3. Children and adults took pictures with Santa and listened to holiday stories told by Mrs. Claus. There also were holiday crafts, caroling, musical guests and a tree lighting ceremony.
“The holiday season is a time for family, and this is JSU’s way of welcoming the community into our family,” said JSU President Carolyn W. Meyers. “We want to create joyful memories.”
All campus departments and student organizations were invited to make an ornament and bring it to be placed on the holiday tree.
