NOV. 19 - A special and memorable occasion – Commsgiving - on Thursday, Nov. 17 was a huge hit. Before the event started at 5 p.m., there was a long line of students waiting at the entrance of The Commons (Comms).

Comms served various items from stuffing to pumpkin pie to a large assortment of artisan bread. The green bean casserole was a fan favorite, and classic Thanksgiving dishes were enjoyed including Brussels sprouts, mashed potatoes, and corn. Students were able to enjoy these items with their friends and collectively filled up the entire dining room. Commsgiving has been a campus-wide tradition for many years that most students look forward to.

This occasion is typically a great success and attracts many students to W&J’s dining. This event is especially significant as it allows students to understand and appreciate the Thanksgiving holiday. Also, it is important to recognize that not everyone has the chance to spend Thanksgiving with their family, so through this occasion, students can spend quality time with their friends.

Comms offered a plethora of bread that some students took to go and placed all around campus including the President's statue on Lincoln Street. Sophomore Michael Wageley stated, “I saw different bread loaves all around campus including in front of the recreation center which made me laugh.”

As a vegetarian, it can be difficult to find a healthy variety of food options at college. However, I personally enjoyed Commsgiving and was pleasantly surprised by the diverse food choices. Surely, Commsgiving will continue to be a notoriously enjoyable and delicious occasion W&J students look forward to!
