The University of North Carolina at Greensboro is celebrating its annual holiday luminary tradition on Reading Day – Tuesday, December 2. Students from the Greek community will begin lighting the luminaries around campus at 1PM. The ceremony begins at 5:00PM at the Vacc Bell Tower behind the Alumni House, sponsored by the UNCG Fraternity and Sorority Association in assistance with the Alumni Association.

The event is free and will feature a telling of the history of the luminaries, performances by the steel drum ensemble, and complimentary hot chocolate and snacks.

Over 1,000 luminaries will glow with light during a campus tradition that began in December of 1969. Initially a Greek initiative, Alpha Phi Omega service fraternity started the annual tradition of lighting the pathways of campus on Reading Day.

For 2014, the annual luminaries will be benefiting a great cause. All profits from luminary sponsorships will go towards a local organization.  Students and members of the public are invited to sponsor a luminary for $1 in honor of a loved one or to send a message of holiday cheer.

Luminary sponsorships will be accepted Monday, November 24 and Tuesday, November 25 from 11AM-3PM in the EUC Commons. You can also contact Curtis Tarver in the Office of Campus Activities and Programs at (336) 334-5800.
