Feeling stressed? Can’t wait for the semester to be over? Then you need to relax and enjoy some sounds of the season, and some holiday shopping, too.
On Thursday, December 3, KU’s Off-Campus Advisory Council (OCAC) is hosting its annual Holiday Marketplace. The event takes place from 11:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. in the Student Union Building’s Multipurpose Room. The Holiday Marketplace is free and open to the public, so bring your friends and family.
Approximately 55 local, outside vendors will be present to sell their items and mingle with student organizations who are also selling items. Items available for purchase include:
Free gift wrapping is available.
While shopping, you will treated to a sampling of music provided by the following KU students and Kutztown residents:
*11:00 a.m. – Kutztown Middle School Jazz Ensemble
*12:00 p.m. – Sasha Baker
*1:00 p.m. – Tim Straughter
*2:00 p.m. – Bob Sica
*3:30 p.m. – Patrick Hagerty
*4:30 p.m. – Tim Ballingall
In addition to shopping and music, you can enter to win one of many Holiday Treasures Gift Baskets designed by different individuals and offices on campus. All proceeds from the gift baskets benefit KUBoK.
So take a break from work and studying and get a jump on your holiday shopping, regardless of what holiday you celebrate. After all, once a busy semester ends, you don’t want to face those busy malls and stores while doing last minute holiday gift shopping. Then, when you’re done, stop by the library and relax with some delicious coffee and a good book.
