What is the CSN Holiday Party?
The CSN Holiday Party is an opportunity to come together and celebrate each other and our accomplishments at the end of each calendar year. There will be alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, along with a buffet dinner, music and dancing.
How do I get tickets?
Tickets are $10 each and are available for purchase through Monday, December 9 at your campus Cashier’s Office. You may purchase a ticket for yourself and a ticket for a guest (adults only please).
You must bring your ticket to the event to be admitted.
Where is the party being held this year?
We are happy to announce that we are bringing the party to our brand new student union on the Charleston Campus. If you have not yet been in the union or the union ballrooms, we hope you will join us for this special night.
Why is CSN charging for tickets?
This is the eighth year CSN has charged to attend the holiday party. We are extremely pleased to announce that, once again, this year's ticket proceeds will go directly to the student emergency fund. This fund was established specifically to assist CSN students with food insecurities, transportation issues and other potential barriers while also providing for crucial wraparound services critical to student success. Ticket proceeds are not used to pay for any part of the holiday party.
Is there a theme this year?
No. We hope you will simply come to help us celebrate the season.
What should I wear?
The event is neither formal nor casual. Dressy casual attire is recommended.
Are we collecting food donations at the door again this year?
Not at this year's event. The Department of Student Life & Leadership, along with ASCSN, asks you to donate much needed toiletry items to the CSN Coyote Cupboards in lieu of a food donation. There is a specific need for toiletry items such as deodorant, toothpaste and toothbrushes, soap, body wash, shampoo and feminine hygiene products. Donations can be made from Monday, December 2 through Friday, December 20. Make your donation at any student government office. They are located in room 113 in all three student unions.
Can part-time employees come?
Yes! CSN part-time employees are welcome to attend the CSN Holiday Party.
Will alcohol be served?
Yes, but we will only serve beer and wine at this year's party. Mixed drinks will not be available. Each person will receive one free drink ticket and beer and wine may be purchased after that. You will need cash to purchase beer and wine as credit cards will not be accepted. Water and punch will be free.
Can my children come?
Adults only please. Alcohol will be served and there are no child-friendly activities planned.
How many tickets can I purchase?
You will be limited to the purchase of two tickets, one for you and one for your guest.
What is the deadline for ticket purchases?
Please purchase your tickets by the end of the business day on Monday, December 9.
Can I buy my ticket at the door?
Yes, but only with exact change or check. No credit or debit cards will be accepted on the night of the party. CSN employees are encouraged to buy their tickets in advance at any campus cashier’s office by December 9 to provide a more accurate count for the food and beverage order.
