Beavers Celebrate the Season at the Christmas Dinner

The evening was full of carols, laughter, and a delicious meal served to students by BVU faculty, staff, and administration. Dressed in their holiday best, students gathered with beloved mascot Buford T. Beaver for photos.

Carols, delicious food, and Beaver friendship surrounded the All-Campus Christmas Dinner on Dec. 6. A holiday feast was enjoyed by BVU students and served by University faculty, staff, and administration.

The evening began with opening remarks from Alan Maldonado, president of Student Senate; and Natalie Brewer, vice president of Student Senate who told the history of the Christmas Dinner tradition. Students also sang carols and enjoyed performances by BVU vocal group Danger Tones. This marked the last Christmas Dinner for chaplain Ken Meissner, who will retire at the end of the academic year. Meissner plays a large role in planning the annual event.

The evening offered a festive environment for the students and those serving the meal, with laughter and a variety of conversations taking place during the meal of roast turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, dressing and green beans.

At the end of the festivities, the students, dressed in their holiday best, gathered with beloved mascot Buford T. Beaver for photos to capture the evening's memories.
