Alumni events and college-sponsored programs are held across the nation to foster lasting relationships with graduates of Christian and Columbia College.

Holiday Lighting Celebration - Columbia, MO

We invite alumni, students, faculty, staff, and community members to join us at the college's annual Holiday Lighting Celebration from 4:30-6:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 1, on Bass Commons behind Rogers Gate. This long-standing event features the lighting of thousands of lights that will burst into view on the peaks and gables of Hughes Hall, Launer Auditorium, St. Clair Hall, Dorsey Hall, Atkins-Holman Student Commons and Missouri Hall.

Complimentary hamburgers, hot dogs and chips will be available for dinner, with holiday cookies from Santa for dessert. Drinks will include hot cocoa and cider. Families are encouraged to attend as there will be kid-friendly activities, including crafts and a photo globe, and our talented Jane Froman Singers will perform holiday favorites.
