Life on Campus

A Very Fred Christmas

Posted by Maura Snyder on Tue, Dec 15, 2015 @ 15:12 PM

Hello Neighbors,

As the holidays are approaching, finals are in full swing. But Christmas cheer can still be found on campus. We hope you enjoy our rendition of “Twas the Night Before Christmas” about our Fred Rogers Scholars Christmas Party:

Twas the first night of finals, when all through the college

Not a student was stirring, gaining some knowledge

The Scholars were celebrating with joy in the air

With hopes that finals soon would be bare

They sprang to their presents, to each other gave cheer

And with their presents in hand, they had not one fear

But we heard them exclaim, as they walked out of sight

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
