FSU students, families celebrate with activities, tree lighting

Ferris State University students and their families packed the Rankin Lounge of the University Center on Thursday to participate in activities representing various holidays including Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and Diwali. Tables set throughout the lounge provided information, food and opportunities to decorate ornaments and stockings, receive henna tattoos, learn how to play games with a dreidel and frost cookies.
