More than 300 students joined in the Lawrence Tech Thanksgiving celebration held at Café Lawrence on November 23. The event was organized by the Dean of Students Office, the English as a Second Language program, and Taher Campus Dining.
The tradition was started more than 10 years ago for international students. Last year the invitation was extended to all students.
“We decided to open it up to the entire campus community,” Dean of Students Kevin Finn said. “The international students wanted to celebrate Thanksgiving with all the other students.”
This year student volunteers worked with the Taher Campus Dining staff to bake 50 sweet potato and 50 pumpkin pies. Half of the pies were donated to Forgotten Harvest and the other half were served at the Thanksgiving dinner.
