The event was well attended with various people across disciplines and with guests who accompanied them. Grads also had the opportunity to win door prizes, which were UNB Christmas ornaments. Eight of these were given away through random draws through-out the event. 

The holiday decorations brought much cheer, and it offered opportunities for incredible photo ops among those in attendance. 

In addition to the decorations and music, the event was catered by Chartwells. It ranged from spring rolls to chicken wings and kept everyone well fed during the few hours of the event.
