Christmas Dinner Lives On Amidst Pandemic

With COVID-19 safety measures in place, Beavers celebrated the holiday season with the traditional All-Campus Christmas Dinner.

Donning masks and keeping their distance, Beavers spread holiday cheer at the annual All-Campus Christmas Dinner, a tradition dating back to 1987. The festive evening took place on Nov. 17, earlier than normal, to accommodate a shortened semester due to COVID-19.

And while tables topped with plexiglass dividers spilled into the Forum and students arrived in two different groups to allow for distancing, BVU’s favorite traditions lived on. University faculty and staff volunteered their time to serving dinner to students who arrived in their holiday best, carols were sung, and even Buford made an appearance.
