Celebrate the Season with LMU

Though our favorite traditions look a little different this year, LMU students, faculty, and staff have found creative ways to be #LMUTogether. Wherever you are, join us to ring in the holiday season with your LMU family.

ASLMU's annual Christmas Tree Lighting is a beloved tradition here at LMU, and while we are unable to host this event in-person as a community, ASLMU is excited to bring some Lion-themed holiday joy to your home. Expect music from LMU choirs, readings, a blessing of the tree, and a visit from the jolliest person on earth! Special guests include President Timothy Law Snyder, Ph.D., Father Marc Reeves, S.J., basketball head coaches Charity Elliott and Stan Johnson, and others.
