The University got into the holiday spirit this season by participating in community events and arranging on-campus celebrations.
The children in the UTC Children’s Center got into the spirit and came to decorate the tree in Founders Hall with ornaments they made.
Chancellor Dr. Steve Angle and his wife, Dr. Dominique hosted the annual Holiday Open House. Faculty, staff, and students enjoyed treats ranging from warm apple cider to cookies to sliced turkey and listened to carols sung by the children (preschool and pre-K) at the UTC Children’s Center.
The University also hosted holiday parties for faculty and staff, and the community governing board at the Chancellor’s House.
Chancellor Angle and his family also hosted students at his house for a holiday get-together.
The Mocs train made an appearance in two community holiday parades this year. UTC participated in the annual Mainx24 parade. Mainx24 is a 24-hour long festival celebrating Main Street and the surrounding Southside, held every December since 2007. The train also made its way through downtown Chattanooga for the city’s annual Starlight parade.
