Thanksgiving is a day for families and friends to get together for a warm special meal. Thanksgiving Day parades are also held in some cities and towns on or around Thanksgiving Day. While most students during the holiday break will be enjoying the traditional thanksgiving festivities with family, the international students will remain here for holidays this year.
"My friend promise to take me home with him but I'm not sure if we are still going at the moment but I do wish he would take me because I never had a thanksgiving here. If all else fail I will go to the president house for thanksgiving and enjoy my holidays there," Shreyash Joshi, freshman.
"I do not have any plan but I think I am going to spend my time in the Rec center playing ping pong going, swimming, running around and visiting downtown Columbus," Kritagya Nepal, freshman.
"All I can do is eat, sleep, and play games and probably cover some of my coursework and go to the president house during thanksgiving," Birendra Sharma, junior.
Thanksgiving is a time for gratitude and appreciation. Even though the international students cannot make it home for the holiday, they have still have plans during the holiday break.
