Thanksgiving Dinner

Thanksgiving, a traditional U.S. holiday, is typically celebrated with family and friends. In an effort to give international students and their families an opportunity to experience this unique American holiday, OIS hosts its annual Thanksgiving Dinner every November. Students in attendance are able to enjoy traditional Thanksgiving food and hospitality on campus while learning about the origin of the holiday and its significance in American culture.
