The tree engineers (we imagine that must be their title) recently finished putting up the lights on the star trees outside our offices at Waller Hall. It's quite an operation, with the ropes, climbers and longs strands of bulbs somehow ending up just where they need to be. It reminds us fondly that the holidays are here.
Many students and alumni will join us for the star tree lighting coming up this weekend. If you're in the area and can make it, we think it's worth the time. But however your holiday and winter schedules shape up, we hope the season is bright, safe and happy.
We'll be taking a scheduled winter hiatus from WU News in January, but we'll see you in February. Until then, enjoy your winter news.
