Thanksgiving break is just a few weeks away. WLU will begin break on Nov. 24 and end on Nov. 26. Students are allowed to stay on campus during break, but there will be special holiday hours in the Union and at the Marketplace.

Every year around Thanksgiving, WLU hosts a “Friendsgiving” themed dinner in the Marketplace. Turkey, mashed potatoes, dinner rolls and more will be served. The idea of the dinner is to bring students together right before they go away for the holidays. This year, the dinner will be taking place on Nov. 18.

WLU senior Ana Musap says, “I go to the Friendsgiving dinner every year with my friends.” She continued, “I think it’s great that WLU offers a special dinner for students to come together and celebrate the holidays for.”

Holiday hours for the Union and Marketplace and for the Friendsgiving Dinner will be posted at a later date. For more information or questions about Thanksgiving break, contact Scott Cook at [email protected].
