A series of special Thanksgiving-themed events took place on the 14th and 15th around campus.

An early Thanksgiving style feast was offered in the cafeteria on the 14th, encouraging students to engage (and engorge) in the festivities with a classic holiday meal. Freshman Joe Wiley said, “The feast was great. They really did well on this one. That’s one way to honor the Thanksgiving spirit.”

Another food-based event, a “Thank You” to Franklin Pierce himself, was held at 1:00 p.m. in DiPietro library, serving cake and refreshments to commemorate the day that Franklin Pierce University was incorporated and chartered. The event also honored President Kim Mooney, who was invited to speak and cut the cake. The event also offered a prize to the person who could correctly answer a sheet of Franklin Pierce-related trivia.

On the 15th, students were also asked to contribute to a Turkey or Raven of Thanks in Spagnuolo hall, allowing each student to put what they were thankful for into writing. Thank You Grams were also offered, giving students the opportunity to send another student or professor a small note of thanks for a one dollar donation. Each of the Thank You Grams were to be specially delivered by a member of the Class of 2021. This wasn’t good enough for freshman Alexandre Wentworth however, who said, “I’m disappointed the Grams couldn’t be presented in the form of song and dance. That was a real deal-breaker for me.”
