In 1953, University Holiday Party festivities centered around this 350-pound cake. This year’s holiday party won’t feature an 11-layer cake, but it certainly won’t lack holiday cheer. The gathering, exclusively for faculty and staff, is Dec. 20 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. in Metcalf Hall at the GSU. BU Photo Services
