Submitted photo by UNIVERSITY COMMUNICATIONS/DONNY CROWE - The Tech tree, located in Centennial Plaza, will be lighted nightly until Christmas. The tree was donated by the university Alumni Association and features hand-made decorations with the Tenets of Tech painted on them.

Christmas came to the Louisiana Tech University family Thursday night in the form of a 15-foot Balsam Hill Rockefeller Pine tree set up in Centennial Plaza and a visit from Santa Claus.
