Catch-Up with Victoria and Nathan: Chapter IV

Victoria Barner

Today’s installment of the Catch-Up Chronicles comes to you on Thanksgiving, which is additionally my birthday this year. Yes, a day of much rejoicing–but don’t worry dear readers, I’ve still found time for you.

In honor of the holidays, today’s post centers around some of the marvelous events involving food that have happened on campus this semester. The first of these to highlight is Eid, a festival that celebrates the breaking of the fast after Ramadan. Every year, students at Vanderbilt host a big dinner and celebration of Eid which is open to everyone so that people like myself can go and learn more! There were fantastic performances, henna tattoos, and amazing food; the whole event was held in a tent right on Commons which was really cool.

The tent in which the festivities took place!

Another delightful event was free ice cream! There seemed to be a lot of free ice cream around Vandy at the beginning of the school year. This particular instance brought homemade ice cream from a food truck stationed right in the middle of campus, and it was scrumptious!

Please note the Vanderbilt-themed flavors. So wonderful.

Last but not least: Sushi Sunday! Highland Quad has had a ton of free food events this year, but my favorite so far has been learning to make sushi on a Sunday afternoon with two friends. A sushi-chef provided all the ingredients, as well as a short lesson, and then we got to eat the fruits of our labor. Delicious.

Our plates of sushi! We're pros now.

As a college student, I love free food, and as you can see from above, Vanderbilt is not lacking in it! Plus, there’s always a chance to learn or to try something new which makes for a doubly wonderful experience. Hope you all are also enjoying some food as well and have a very happy Thanksgiving!
