State College Gets Lit With Annual IFC Holiday Light Tours

by Joseph Whitman

With only a week left in the semester, students are anxiously looking towards Winter Break. To help everyone get in the holiday mood and forget about the impending doom sure to come next week, more than 30 Fraternities decorated their houses throughout Frat Land to participate in the annual IFC Holiday Light Tours.

Sigma Nu, located on the west side of campus, kicked off the event by welcoming families Wednesday night. The brothers of Sigma Nu provided refreshments prior to boarding the trolleys that would take families around State College, to the other frat houses.

Luckily for the students who were too busy studying to go look at the lights, we decided to get into the holiday spirit, dawning our ugliest of ugly sweaters. Here are some of the houses that went the extra mile in getting lit this year.
