From Welcome Week and the Lighting of the Quad, to a Valentine’s Day “mixer” and a “puppy break,” there are all sorts of events you can attend to meet other students and take a break from your studies. Keep reading to learn about some of the people and events that have helped make MC feel like a second home to me this year.

Returning from Thanksgiving break has one thing on our minds--finals. Final projects, exams, and presentations are all happening, and we are longing for Christmas. Luckily, our Campus Activities Board plans Lighting of the Quad, which is the most magical event of the year.

If you didn't know, Christmas only comes once a year. And if you're in college, you only get about a week and a half to truly celebrate it while at school. At MC we go big when it comes to Christmas. We wrap up all the Christmas cheer and stuff it into one massive on-campus event: Lighting of the Quad!
