Goodwell, Okla. — Christmas time is upon Oklahoma Panhandle State University, and with that cheery air comes festivities, and a lot of them! From Aggie Wonderland, to Christmas concerts, the Aggie family has something for all ages.

Holiday events kick off this Friday the 30th, as all Panhandle State employees will attend the annual Christmas party on campus. The luncheon will include a Christmas tree decorating contest, a holiday desert contest, a table decorating contest, and an ugly sweater contest. Employees’ families will get to partake in the meal and Christmas atmosphere as well.

The following day, Panhandle State’s music department will be hosting Tubachristmas. Saturday, December 1st will be a musical experience you don’t want to miss! All interested in participating in Tubachristmas will have a $30 participation fee, which includes a commemorative button. Proceeds from the event go to support the Panhandle State Band’s trip to Tulsa for the Oklahoma Intercollegiate Honor Band Clinic and Concert. Participants will have a 3 p.m. rehearsal that afternoon before their performance that evening in the Student Union.
