“For my family it’s more about the leftovers. We take all the turkey, stuffing, potatoes, green beans and make the ultimate day after feast. We probably put more effort into this than the actual thanksgiving dinner itself. My family isn’t a big fan of leftovers and one day we decided to change that and worked really hard to make the best of the extra food. We spend time thinking of innovative ways to compose dishes without making them totally gross. This is probably my favorite thanksgiving tradition.” -Freshman Jianna Ursitti

“My favorite thanksgiving dish is mashed potatoes. When I was younger I used to ask my mom to help with the dinner and she knew I’d mess up everything so she always bought a box of instant mashed potatoes. I would add in the butter and the water and the salt and mix it all up. I felt like I was helping and would show off the potatoes to my whole family. The tradition has been going on for years and it’s something I want to keep passing on.” -Freshman Karlie Boyd

“My family loves to make cranberry sauce from scratch every year, it’s our little thing” -Freshman Lexi Dangel
