The Campus Activities Board hosted the Holiday Extravaganza: Christmas event on Wednesday on the Citrus Lawn.

Staff and students were able to get into the Christmas spirit by having Christmas activities while listening to Christmas music.

CAB had DIY activities like wood painting and decorating Christmas stockings.

They also offered free food and drinks like pupusas (a Salvadorian thick corn tortilla filled with savory filling), conchas (Mexican sweet bread), champurrado (Mexican chocolate drink), classic Palmier cookies, tamales, jamaica and horchata.

CAB also had a raffle where students could win prizes like free movie tickets.

At the end of the event, students could pick up a free red or pastel blue shirt with a Christmas ornament on their left-side cover with the “ULV” inside.
