UIWʼs 27th Annual Light the Way, sponsored by H-E-B, will celebrate “Christmas Around the World,” on Saturday, November 23, 2013 at 7:30 p.m. in the Tom and Gayle Benson Stadium. The program will feature an exciting lineup of dynamic musical entertainment. The program will conclude when the official switch is flipped to illuminate the campus with nearly 1 million Christmas lights! In keeping with tradition, a candlelit procession will be led by Mariachis Las Coronelas around campus. Once again we will be collecting new and unwrapped toys for the Elf Louise Project. Come celebrate the diversity of UIW and the Alamo City as we honor “Christmas Around the World”. NOTE: Due to construction projects both on and surrounding campus, the traditional Light the Way mass will not be held this year in Our Ladyʼs Chapel.
