Giving thanks

By: Ryan Gilroy ’19, staff writer

On a cold, snowy Thursday night, the LVC community came together for a night of feasting and friends.

LVC’s annual Thanksgiving dinner filled Mund and was attended by over 300 students, a tradition that has carried on through numerous decades.

“When I first came to Lebanon Valley, it was a tradition that was already here,” Jen Evans, director of student activities, said. “It’s one of our favorite things to do for the students.”

The dinner was served by professors and faculty alike, who brought turkey, stuffing, corn, mashed potatoes and gravy, ham, pie, hot apple cider and coffee for the students.

“We did apple pie instead of pecan because a lot of students love apple pie,” Evans said. “We also did away with the vegetable tray but other than that, everything else is fairly the same.”

While the food comes and goes, the Thanksgiving tradition will stay put for the students in years to come. Metz and LVC thanks everyone who attended and wishes everyone a happy Thanksgiving.

“I thank the students for making it one of our favorite things we have,” Evans said.
