For many people in the U.S., Thanksgiving represents a time to gather with family and/or friends to reconnect, enjoy each other's company, and share a wonderful meal together. Over the past several years, UB's faculty, staff and alumni have demonstrated their generous spirit by hosting Thanksgiving dinner for a number of our international students. However, the challenges brought about by COVID-19 have required us to make some changes to our annual Thanksgiving without Borders program. For Fall 2022, we will be hosting a by-invitation Thanksgiving Dinner. As much as we would like to open the event to all students, it is just not possible.
