I remember going to Christmas Coffeehouse my freshman year and having one of the greatest times of my life. The anticipation you build up while waiting outside in line while freezing is just the beginning of the fun. As you walk in, you see all the decorations around the Vines Center, and that makes it feel like Christmas morning with all your friends. At Coffeehouse freshman year, after we walked around for a bit taking pictures with the different decorations, we found our seats right before the show began. I still remember singing along to classic Christmas songs and dancing around the entire night. We would get a quick break from all the singing along to watch hilarious videos before getting to enjoy more acts.
Christmas Coffeehouse is the largest annually paid-for event in Lynchburg, and it is just right around the corner! There is so much excitement and anticipation for Coffeehouse, and I hope you share that same feeling with us. Coffeehouse is an amazing event for you and your friends to enjoy a late night of singing and laughing to get yourself ready for the most wonderful time of the year.
Now that I work for Student Activities, Coffeehouse looks a bit different for me than what it did my freshman year. After joining SA last semester and seeing how much work is done in preparation for each Coffeehouse, it makes me that much more excited and appreciative of each one. From building different scenes to handing out coffee and telling students about Coffeehouse, I have just as much fun and excitement for Coffeehouse as when I went for the very first time. Even though I am not sitting amongst the rows of students, I still get to have an amazing time because I can be part of an incredible team that gets to serve the student body and the Lynchburg community in a unique way.
This year Coffeehouse is going to be even more spectacular than years before with immersive decorations that make you feel like you are walking around The North Pole with your friends. We hope to see you and your friends on November 30th at 11:30 p.m. for Coffeehouse: The North Pole in Vines Center.
