Recent PSE Holiday Greeting Videos (Part 2)

Ken Steele completes his survey of recent trends in college and university holiday greeting videos in this week’s 20-minute episode of Ten with Ken. (If you missed Part 1, watch it first). This time, we look at highlights from 27 institutional videos from some of our favourite categories: comedy and parody, seasonal goodwill gestures, and campus choirs and musicians.

We’ve had to significantly edit these videos for the podcast, and although we’ve tried to retain their flavour and focus on their best moments, you may want to go watch the full, unedited versions:
