What are Syracuse students thankful for?

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and Syracuse students are heading home for a break from classes and a chance to see friends and family. (I personally cannot wait to see my dog and eat several plates of mashed potatoes.)

The classic Thanksgiving question is, of course, “What are you thankful for?” So, I asked a few of my classmates what they are thankful for as students at Syracuse University.

“I’m thankful for the diversity, specifically referring to clubs and activities that I can get involved in. Cuse offers an abundant amount of clubs and extracurriculars that students can participate in and campus is NEVER dull. There’s always stuff going on.”- Vida Hawkes, Citizenship and Civic Engagement and Policy Studies major, participates in Mock Trial and the Phi Alpha Delta law fraternity

“I’m thankful for the friendships I have made and the communities I am a part of.”- Michelle Jordan, Public Relations and Marketing major, Hill Communications associate and member of Kappa Alpha Theta sorority

“I’m thankful for the sense of community that I feel at Syracuse University. And the sports!”- Jacob Landis, Undecided, Dedicated Orange fan

“I’m thankful for the friends I have at SU. Being able to say I have friends all around the U.S. and the world is exciting. I am also grateful for finding a home here at Syracuse. I seldom get homesick because the environment here is so inclusive and welcoming. The academics are interesting and extracurriculars keep me busy.”- Jackie Page, International Relations major, participates in ROTC, Nourish International, Women’s Club Lacrosse and Color Guard
