Igniting Hope is the Residence Hall Association’s (RHA) annual tree lighting ceremony. Each year, hundreds of Marquette students, staff, and faculty gather to celebrate the start of the Advent season and to prepare for the Christmas season.
Please join the Marquette community this year on Monday, December 1 at 5:00pm in Westowne Square to witness the blessing and lighting of our Christmas tree. After the ceremony, continue the celebration in the Alumni Memorial Union Ballrooms at a reception with food, beverages, musical performances, and crafts! This RHA celebration is a magnificent way to begin the Christmas season and is a tradition you will not want to miss!
Additionally, in the spirit of giving, RHA will collect funds to donate to Toys for Tots foundation servicing the Greater Milwaukee Area. Please donate to brighten the holiday season for a child who might otherwise go without. Be on the lookout for a collection jar in the lobby areas of all Residence Halls and University Apartments, as well as for our table in the AMU during lunch hours!Come celebrate the start of the Christmas season with RHA!
