Baylor to offer Thanksgiving dinner Wednesday

By Abigail Loop

Baylor students and faculty are set to get an early start on the Thanksgiving holiday by attending Baylor’s annual celebration, Thanksgiving on the Grounds.

The dinner, which has been a tradition on campus since 2008, will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. Wednesday in Burleson Quadrangle.

It is hosted by the junior class officers.

Katy sophomore Lawren Kinghorn, public relations chair for student government, said the dinner is a great way to come together.

“We’ve been doing this for about the past five years and it’s one of my favorite traditions,” Kinghorn said. “It’s really unifying and we’re expecting a good turnout.”

James Wharton, senior food service director of Baylor Dining Services, said the dinner will be provided by Aramark, Baylor’s food service.

The dinner will include turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, green beans, corn, gravy, cranberry sauce and rolls. Hot chocolate will also be provided.

“It will be available to the whole university, even to people who don’t have a meal plan,” Wharton said. “It’s free for everyone and a time for everyone to get together for the holidays.”

All guests who attend the dinner will need to present their Baylor I.D.s for identification purposes and immediate family members of faculty are also welcome.
