Nov. 27, 2015—Thanksgiving can be a lonely time for international students all around the country. It’s the time of year where we eat take-out while scrolling through our social media accounts looking at the enticing home-cooked meals our American friends are sharing with their families. Fortunately, thanks to my Faculty Head of House Dr. Cone, and his wife Mrs. Cone, I avoided a Thanksgiving spent in solitude.
Dec. 16, 2014—Thanksgiving Day is a national holiday to "thank," or be grateful for, the harvest of the previous year. Thanksgiving is a very North American tradition, and most international students do not know much about it. As for myself, celebrating an American tradition for the first time could not be better than a dinner at the Cones' (Faculty Apartment of Murray House).
