Through the Eyes of a Child is an annual event sponsored by the Students for Social Justice Organization and Beta Theta Pi Fraternity. Approximately 100 children from St. Francis and St. Thomas Aquinas Elementary Schools visit JCU’s campus for a day of activities and friendship, including cookie-decorating, card-making, a visit with Santa, lunch in the cafeteria, and the long-awaited dance-off at the end of the day! Each child is paired with a JCU student as a buddy, who spends the day with the child and buys them a Christmas gift (up to $20) from the child’s wish list.

This 2013 event was held on Saturday, December 7th from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm.
