Students Decorate Founder’s Hall for the Holidays

Our students are preparing to be holly jolly for the holiday season!


Each year, UAT students gather in Founder’s Hall to decorate for the holidays. This year was no exception! From snowmen to tinsel, students made sure that anyone strolling through the common area would feel the holiday spirit.


You can find Founder’s Hall at the center of UAT’s vibrant Residence Life Community. Located on campus, Founder’s Hall is just a minute’s walk across the quad from classrooms, the New Technology Lab, Motion Capture and Composite Studio, the Commons, the theater, Café and more! Founder’s Hall is full of friends. Meet your neighbor technophiles, innovators and future industry leaders who have found their home away from home here.

Tinkle, tinkle, tinsel! No tree is complete without a little (or a lot!) of tinsel. Bailey is getting to work.

Who knew Natalie plays the brass! Whether it’s “Jingle Bells” or “Deck the Halls,” UAT students are having a jolly time with jams while decorating.
