Student organizations Cru and Bridges are teaming up to offer students an opportunity to “Gobble Till You Wobble” on Monday (Nov. 16) in the Kat Klub.
The fourth annual Thanksgiving feast will take place from 7-9 p.m. and will include a number of activities, such as “Minute To Win It” games, door prizes and a turkey bowling competition, during which participants will bowl with a frozen turkey.
The feast also will include a free traditional turkey dinner.
“Bridges is a new organization at SHSU, specifically designed to help international students at Sam,” said Maddison Reid, who has been involved with Cru since 2013. “The event has always been, in part, an opportunity for international students who are unable to go home for Thanksgiving and may not be aware of the traditions associated with the holiday. When Bridges became an official student organization, we were so excited to get them involved with the celebration as well.”
Now in its fourth year, the Thanksgiving feast has had a “spectacular” turnout and has grown exponentially, according to Reid.
“It first started out in a living room of a house not too far from campus,” she said. “It was such a success; we realized that we squeezed 67 people into that house and knew that it was time to move to campus, as we were busting at the seams. We’ve hosted it in the Kat Klub for four years now, and the response has been amazing.”
The event is free and open to all students, faculty and staff.
