• Students initiate Christmas care packages for soldiers

    soldier-christmas-jan09.jpgA group of Baylor graduate students from Baylor’s department of psychology and neuroscience adopted a unit of soldiers stationed in Iraq for Christmas, organizing a special delivery overseas that included snacks, homemade baked goods, board games, letters and cards for each recipient.

    The unit, based out of nearby Fort Hood, consists of 35 soldiers and has been in Iraq for the past 15 months. In addition to the individual gifts, the unit also received a seven-foot Christmas tree, complete with ornaments and lights. Many of the students and faculty who contributed to the giving received messages and photos from the soldiers (click here for more photos) expressing their thanks.

    Sic ’em, students spreading Christmas cheer!
