Tuffy travels across campus, stopping at some of the most well-known locations, to gather decorations and gifts. Once his tree is fully decorated, he then welcomes all of the students back to Gill Welcome Center to see his creation, but someone very important is missing. Find out who it is in the 2012 Christmas E-Card - "An Ashland University Christmas Story."
