Harding University students, faculty and staff began the holiday season Monday, Nov. 28, at 6 p.m. for the annual Christmas lighting ceremony on the front lawn near the David B. Burks American Heritage Building.

President Bruce McLarty led the crowd in a countdown to turn on more than 100,000 LED lights that will illuminate the campus for several weeks.

Preparations for the event have been underway since October when the physical resources department began hanging lights throughout campus. The lights will remain on until Jan. 8, 2017, and Arkansans are encouraged to add the campus to their lists of light displays to visit this year.

There are many events happening on campus this holiday season so that the whole family can enjoy Christmas at Harding. For more information, visit
