Jim Bowman, international student adviser, welcomes guests and Thanksgiving diners-to-be and explains the historical background of the holiday.
An International Education Week balloon serves as a centerpiece at each table and includes prompts for an icebreaker game for the diners.
This table full of guests gets into the spirit with some balloon volleyball.

Traditional Thanksgiving fare included carved turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, cranberries, green bean casserole, green salad and rolls, alongside a tofu option for vegetarians. Dessert and non-alcoholic beverages were also served.
