Campus illuminated for the holiday season

Oct. 30, 2020 | Harding Lights |

Harding University will kick off the holiday season with a closed lighting ceremony for students, faculty and staff Monday, Nov. 2. Guests are invited to view the beautiful display beginning Sunday, Nov. 22.

President Bruce McLarty will lead the campus community in a countdown to illuminate thousands of lights that will grace the front lawn through New Year’s. Preparations have been underway since September when the University’s physical resources department began hanging lights and Christmas wreaths across campus. The lights will remain on until the new year, and all Arkansans are encouraged to add the campus to their lists of light displays to visit this year, beginning Nov. 22.
