Top Higher Ed Holiday Cards – 2010 Edition

December 14th, 2010 Karine Joly 30 Comments

I love holidays cards from universities and colleges – especially, now that many institutions use video (fewer dead trees and more interactivity).

So, here’s a selection of my favorites. If you have a holiday card or have seen a cool one, post a comment and I’ll add it to this list.

Happy Holidays!

American University Card

University of Maryland Card

University of Washington Card

Carleton University Card

Edinboro University Card

Eckerd College Card

    Whatever happened to the heart-felt-single-image-with-a-greeting holiday card. Not that these aren’t great, but I think we’re trying way too hard to be memorable.

    I tend to agree with Joe. That said, here is ours at Stony Brook University. http://www.stonybrook.edu/sb/email/holiday/

  6. Great stuff. Ours pales in comparison — just an Animoto-ized display of some snowy campus pictures over music from our percussion ensemble: http://animoto.com/play/UXVr2X0wD9IYCdNOuO5X9A

  7. Here is the holiday greeting sent to the William & Mary community from our president, Taylor Reveley. The greeting features the artwork and musical talents of two William & Mary students.

    The wofford video is funny because it is not snowing there

  9. Cayla says:

    It’s not supposed to be snowing at Wofford. It’s in South Carolina.

    These holiday cards are fantastic. Montgomery College, in Montgomery County, Maryland, has also created our first video e-card for the holiday season. I’m glad to hear that we are among such wonderful institutions in our efforts.

    Such fun! Here are two created by our student assistant. The first is the general “institutional” greeting, the second was created specifically for athletics.

    Merry Christmas to all!

  14. I hesitate to post this link to our holiday greeting since The Loomis Chaffee School is a boarding school, not a college, but I thought people might enjoy seeing our stop-motion “holiday Scramble.”
    Enjoy!
