Cushing Olympics Continue with Holiday Stroll

Following Friday’s Winter Celebration performances and formal dinner, it was time for another annual tradition: the Holiday Stroll.  This event, held in memory of Jimmie-Gaye Buono, a beloved member of our Student Life Office who passed away in March, brings a team of judges together to stroll through campus to admire and rate dorms (including the day student lounge) for their display of holiday cheer.  Points are awarded to the top participating groups and added to their running scores in the Cushing Olympics.
This year’s judges were welcomed and wooed at various stops with a holiday sing-along, cookies and hot chocolate, displays of lights and décor, music and dancing, cupcake buffet, and even an original song. We were especially honored to have members of the Buono family join us as part of this year’s judging contingent. The top scorers will be announced to the community after winter break.
