Students share holiday greetings through cards written at the outdoor writing station on The Compass.

Season’s greetings

The holidays are better together. So is life on campus. And it turns out that when you place a few desks and some festive lights on The Compass, something remarkable happens.

The holidays are better together. So, too, is life on campus. For their annual holiday video, our colleagues in University Marketing decided to create an interactive space to help us all share that joy with one another, setting up a festive outdoor writing station for people to pen notes to friends, classmates and colleagues. The instructions were simple. The results? Well, see for yourself. Happy holidays, Rams. We’ll see you in the new year.


We’re all excited to be together again this year. Watch how we brought the spirit of the season to life on our campus. Happy holidays from everyone at VCU.
