Campus Candids

A light afternoon snowfall made for a perfect backdrop as Cantio Sacra performed a selection of Christmas carols for visitors to the library. The collective voices of the singing ensemble were just what we needed to get us in the joyous spirit of the holidays. Passersby were filled with cheer as they entered the library to the sound of classic Christmas songs. Thank you!
