Georgia Southern’s Christmas Boxes Revealed

It’s that time of the year again as maintenance staff and crews are decking the halls of Georgia Southern University with boughs of holly.

Christmas decorations go up right before students are let out for Thanksgiving break and stay up into the new year. Buildings such as the Russell Union, Deal Hall and the Marvin Pittman Administration Building are laced with wreaths and Christmas greenery. Dining halls like Lakeside and Dining Commons join the festivities by decorating their cafeterias with trees and gift boxes. Iconic parts of Georgia Southern such as Sweetheart Circle are decorated as well.

Christmas decorations arrive to the school in the form of big, tall wooden boxes painted in gold and blue with white stripes across them. Newcomers to GSU may wonder what’s inside while students familiar with the school’s traditions are simply reminded that Christmas is right around the corner.
