Our Newest (& Merriest) Exhibit

75 years of Christmas Celebrations at Bloomsburg University

The holiday of Christmas has been celebrated at Bloomsburg University in various ways throughout the years. This exhibit looks at a number of the traditions that have come and gone during the 75-year period from 1930 to 2005. These included decorations on campus; dances, dinners, and parties; working with children by hosting parties and collecting toys for youngsters in need; and yearly musical concerts, special presentations such as the opera Amahl and the Night Visitors and the oratorio The Messiah, banquets with performances by the Madrigal Singers, and concerts as a part of the Celebrity Artist Series.
The display includes photographs, newspapers, programs, LP records, scrapbooks, and yearbooks and is installed in the flat cases on the third floor of the Andruss Library. The exhibit will be on display until February 29, 2016.
