2022 Holiday Card

Teri Jacques (BA ’23) celebrates writing the final poem for our Poet-in-the-Box at the 2022 All-University Open House

Each year, we assemble an end-of-year card for our donors and friends, seeking input from our faculty and students — and, as of 2020, from you, our readers!

Below are twelve images that have been popular on our social media platforms this year and that capture some of the people, events, and experiences of 2022.

Visit tinyurl.com/2022holidaycardselection by this Friday (December 16) at 11:59pm CT to share your ranked preferences.

The top six images — along with some other highlights — will appear on our 2022 holiday card, which will arrive to the mailboxes of our friends and donors in early January and appear on our social media platforms soon after.

Thank you in advance for your help!

With best wishes for a restful and healthy holiday season —

Karin Westman, Department Head
