Each year the SPSU Community celebrates the winter holidays with a party. In 2013, we combined our party with that of President Rossbacher, and had a beautiful reception. The Student Center Ballroom is transformed into a holiday party scene where more than 200 employees and their guests gather for food and fellowship. In years past, we have enjoyed elementary school choruses which lead us in singing 'The Twelve Days of Christmas.' The SPSU Band has played for us, as have several talented professors, most notably, Lance Crimm on piano. The annual Stuff-a-Bus food & toys charity drive is held in conjunction with the Holiday Reception. Both are treasured celebrations at SPSU.
