Baylor’s Student Government Association will host its annual Thanksgiving on the Grounds from 5 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at the Burleson Quadrangle.

The event will include food, Uproar music and opportunities to learn about service projects within the Waco community. Judge Ken Starr, president of the university, will also be in attendance. “This is a wonderful opportunity for us to gather together as a campus community, to enjoy good food, music and fellowship and learn how together we can serve our local community and around the world,” Lori Folgeman, director of media communications said.

Baylor is one of many universities throughout the country that will host a thanksgiving dinner during the National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week. Dallas freshman Elisa Cruz said events like these are important to these critical causes as they increase awareness and cause students to be even more thankful of certain privileges they enjoy.
