The Texas A&M Corps of Cadets will host “Holiday on the Quad,” an event open to the Texas A&M and Bryan-College Station communities, on Sunday, Dec. 5. The event will begin at 5 p.m. on the Quad, home of the Corps of Cadets, and will end at approximately 9 p.m.

Holiday on the Quad is a free event for the public and a fundraiser for local non-profits. Donations are encouraged, but not required, for most booths at the event. Funds donated during the event will support non-profits in the Bryan-College Station area including Twin City Mission, Habitat for Humanity, Scotty’s House and the Brazos Valley Food Bank.

Those attending are also encouraged to bring canned food items to donate to The 12th Can food pantry, which serves all students, staff and faculty at Texas A&M. Collection boxes will be set up around the Quad.

The event will feature a Christmas light-decorated Quad and a range of booths including food and hot drinks, interactive games and plenty of photo opportunities for families and children. For the first time, several student organizations from across campus will join Holiday on the Quad; Black Student Alliance Council, Hispanic Presidents’ Council, Council for Minority Student Affairs and the Native American and Indigenous Student Organization will have booths at the event. Highlights will include photos with Santa and Reveille.
