Millikin University to hold 81st annual Cookie Party

DECATUR - Millikin University has announced that it will hold its 81st annual Cookie Party for members of the university community on December 10.

The party will be held Wednesday afternoon in the Lower Richards Treat University Center on Millikin's campus.  Millikin officials say this party is held every year as a way to raise students' spirits before final exams are administered, as well as a way to celebrate the holiday season at the university.

Officials say nearly 5,000 cookies will be sampled during the annual party.  Students who can't attend the event, are encouraged to participate in Millikin's first virtual cookie party by submitting a photo of eating a cookie to the university's Facebook and Twitter pages and including the hashtag #BigBlueCookie.
