A DIY holiday card for #highered

Missouri S&T’s 2016 holiday card gives recipients the opportunity to create their own S&T-themed card.

Here at Missouri S&T (@MissouriSandT), we pride ourselves in the abundance of makers and tinkerers in our midst. Whether they’re studying business or biochemical engineering, our students are resourceful and inventive. So it only made sense to give them (and our alumni) a tool to let them build their own S&T-themed holiday card.

Earlier this month, Chancellor Cheryl B. Schrader (@SandTChancellor) sent a note to our students, alumni, faculty and staff, as well as to her peers and friends at other institutions, introducing them to the tool and inviting them to take it for a test spin. They could decorate campus landmarks with festive holiday bling, add some characters that represent our campus (like the Formula SAE race car, which represents one of our 18 student design teams) or incorporate some ghosts of Christmases past (like the yeti, which made its first appearance in a 2012 holiday card from our campus) or other holidays (like Doge, which commandeered our website on April Fools’ Day 2014).

Why not test it out for yourself? You don’t have to be a Missouri S&T student or grad to have some fun with this build-a-card workshop. Go ahead. Give it a try. Consider it our holiday gift to you.
