Winter on Walnut is coming up this Friday, December 3! Make plans to join us from 5-9PM on Walnut Street for lots of food, festivities, and fun! Activities on the street will includes holiday-themed food and treats, marshmallow roasting, horse-drawn carriage rides (on the oval lot), a Christmas tree farm, and giveaways.

Students: You can attend for free and don't need to register - just show up! You may use a meal swipe from 5-7PM for a dinner of chili, hot cider, and dessert!

Non-students (employees, alumni, families): the cost is $5 per person or $30 per family (no limit on family size), and it provides a wristband that covers crafts for kids, s'mores, and carriage rides. Non-students register here.

Here's a rundown of special events. The events at 6:30PM and 7:00PM are free and open to the public!! The event at 10:00PM is for students only. No registration or payment needed.

  • At 6:30PM, we will light the campus Christmas tree outside Graves Hall.
  • At 7:00PM, join us in Neu Chapel for the Candlelight Vespers service (seating is limited for this). The service will feature the UE Music Conservatory. Masks will be required while indoors. You may also live stream the service on YouTube.
  • At 10PM, students can join us for an "after-party" in Eykamp Hall for bingo! (No cost to attend) 

The UE Bookstore will also be open during Winter on Walnut from 5-9PM! Stop by and purchase merchandise or Christmas gifts and get 10% off during the event. They are also having a Christmas Sweater contest on their Facebook page, and prizes will be awarded!
