The fall 2020 semester is quickly coming to a close which can only mean one thing – Christmas Coffeehouse is right around the corner. That’s right! On Friday, November 20, Student Activities will be hosting the campus favorite tradition through a virtual show on Instagram. Starting at 8 p.m., viewers will be treated to musical acts and videos throughout the night. You’ll want to be paying attention closely, because we will be handing out several prizes all throughout the week and our final giveaway during the event.
The theme for this year’s Christmas Coffeehouse is Winter Wonderland. We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the season than to create a wintery world filled with snowflakes and icicles. It may not be snowing much, or at all, down here in Virginia, but with a little imagination you can join us for a wintery night.
Unlike previous Coffeehouses, this show is completely on us, meaning you don’t have to buy a ticket to join in on the fun. Just head over to SA’s Instagram at 8 p.m. with your roommates, community groups, and maybe a bag of popcorn to watch the show. Content will be released over a two hour span every 15-20 minutes, with trivia to play in-between as you wait. If you’re by yourself, watching on a phone or tablet should work fine. For those planning on getting together with some friends, you might want to connect you laptop or mobile device to your TV for the event using screen share or HDMI.
We may not be together in person, but that shouldn’t stop you from watching along. A big part of the magic of Coffeehouse is celebrating Christmas together with everyone as one community, and that doesn’t have to change just because we aren’t with each other in the Vines Center.
So mark your calendars, and get ready to walk through that wardrobe to a land of all things snow. We’ll see you next Friday in a winter wonderland!
