The holidays are a time of warmth and family. However, living on a large campus like MSU can make it easy for you to feel lost if you don’t know where to go to celebrate. With Thanksgiving around the corner, if you’re looking for a community full of smiles and a juicy slice of turkey, be sure to check out the Thanksgiving Unity Dinner hosted by the Office of Cultural and Academic Transitions.
The Thanksgiving Unity Dinner started as a solution for international students who struggled with limited campus dining hall hours and could not afford to splurge on a meal every day during the holiday. This dinner is a fun way to celebrate and learn about Thanksgiving with hundreds of hungry Spartans from all over the world who don’t have the opportunity to go home for the holidays. Local restaurants will be catering the event and the food is free, so come prepared to eat to your heart’s content.
When you’re done scarfing down your plate, join in on the dance floor to work off all that pumpkin pie. If the thought of making new friends scares you, feel free to reach out to anyone you know who will be on campus and come as a group. Just be sure to register before the deadline on Nov. 21.
