    As the university makes the transition to the holiday season, it will host several events to keep students in good spirits, especially through finals.

    According to a university’s e-mail, there is an opportunity for students to give back to the community this holiday season. The campus organization Order of Omega is sponsoring an Angel Tree gift drive for children in the Fort Worth branch of Child Protective Services.

    According to the e-mail, which was sent to students Monday, more than 200 children have not been selected. To participate in the event, students should select a child’s card, shop for the child and bring a wrapped toy to tonight’s Christmas tree lighting at 7 p.m.

    Other campus events will include the Hanging of the Greens, the Word of Truth Gospel Choir Christmas Concert, the annual Carols by Candlelight and Good Gift, Green Gift.

    Good Gift, Green Gift will be held today from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. outside the Robert Carr Chapel. The event will feature fair trade, socially responsible gifts along with soup and snacks.

    Hanging of the Greens will be held today at 11:30 a.m. in the chapel. Students will decorate the chapel while enjoying cookies and cider at this event.

    The Word of Truth Gospel Choir Christmas Concert will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday in the Brown-Lupton University Union Ballroom. For questions, e-mail Walter Sanders III at w.l.sanders@tcu.edu.

    The Annual Carols by Candlelight will be held at 7 p.m. Dec. 13 in the Robert Carr Chapel. Students and families will share the festiveness of the holiday season with traditional songs and readings, while enjoying cocoa and cookies. There also will be special performances from the School of Music, Word of Truth Gospel Choir and the Reformed University Fellowship band.
