Happy Thanksgiving


Dear Students, Faculty and Staff:

Every year, Thanksgiving Day affords us the opportunity to come together and celebrate the many blessings in our lives.

The reach of Buckeye Nation is far and wide. For some, the voyage home is a short drive down the street, while others must board planes destined for distant corners of the world. Wherever you travel when you leave our campuses, you do so in the knowledge that your Ohio State family is never far.

That is why it is a privilege to participate in the 25th annual Thanksgiving dinner, a celebration for those who will remain on campus.

Join with fellow Buckeyes on Thursday, Nov. 24, for a traditional turkey dinner at the Ohio Union. There will be two seatings, one at 11:45 a.m. and another at 2 p.m. Tickets are free of charge and can be picked up at the Ohio Union Information Center, the Hale Black Cultural Center and in 140 Enarson Classroom Building.

Safe travels to those taking to the roads and the skies. To everyone at Ohio State, Brenda and I wish you a happy and festive Thanksgiving!
