ornaments of the old Medical College of Georgia building and the Augusta University arch

Exclusive holiday ornaments to launch at Augusta University’s Lighting of the Tree

Need a holiday gift idea? Check out the limited edition Augusta University and Medical College of Georgia holiday ornaments.

For this first year, two special designs are being introduced – an Augusta University ornament featuring the beautiful arched gateway of the Summerville Campus and an ornament depicting the Old Medical College building and its iconic columns in downtown Augusta.

β€œThe holiday ornaments are symbols of iconic places around campus, the old Medical College of Georgia and the beautiful entrance to Augusta University on the Summerville Campus. These ornaments celebrate the holidays and showcase our pride in AU! As a new team member in Alumni Engagement, I am excited to have both ornaments to represent my work with the alumni community,” said Allison Toney, director of Alumni Engagement.

Proceeds from each ornament sold will benefit the alumni associations. The 2023 holiday ornaments may be ordered online, or you may purchase in person at the alumni tent at the annual Lighting of the Tree starting at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 30.

This free event takes place in front of the Maxwell Theatre on the Summerville Campus and features activities for the whole family, including holiday crafts and games, train rides, inflatables, a holiday market, photos with Santa and more.

Guests are encouraged to bring non-perishable food and personal items to donate to the Open Paws Student Food Pantry.

For more information about the ornament sale, contact Alumni Engagement or call 706-737-1759.
