When was the last time you saw a university president wear an apron?
President Jonathan D. Green will do it this year, carving a turkey for one table of lucky students at our annual Thanksgiving Dinner.
The Thursday before Thanksgiving, after a few days of table-claiming and excitement, students dress in their finest and gather for an amazing meal. Aside from the delectable turkey and fixings, it's a treat to be served by the faculty and staff.
Students assemble at white-clothed tables at the hectic time of the year right before finals to raise glasses of sparkling juice, give thanks and enjoy a good meal with their closest friends.
Since 1981, this Susquehanna tradition has shown how the campus community comes together as a family, by demonstrating the care and regard faculty have for students. Memories that students make on this special day last a lifetime.
A cherished gathering marking the Advent season, the service includes candle lighting and carols as well as traditional readings, songs and prayers.
Students and alumni alike step it up each April with volunteer service for the benefit of food pantries, senior centers, animal shelters, and dozens of other organizations near campus and regions beyond.
