SHSU 99th Annual Tree of Light Ceremony

An almost 100-year holiday tradition has held strong, despite the pandemic. Sam Houston State University’s 99th Annual Tree of Light Ceremony took place virtually this year thanks to the help of students, staff and faculty who worked together (from different locations) to pull-off a safe and festive event complete with student performances by the SHSU Choral and Orange Pride Dance Team.

The tree-lighting ceremony reminds students and the university community what the holiday season is all about. To share with those in need, the Sam Houston State Student Activities Department continued its tradition of collecting canned goods to benefit an area organization.
