Because many students and faculty are not able to go home for the Thanksgiving holiday, a variety of traditional holiday dinners are held around campus throughout the break and in the time leading up to it. At right, first-year graduate student Christy Hudson helps herself to some pumpkin pie at the George Warren Brown School of Social Work Dinner held Nov. 18 in Brown Hall Lounge. In the background is Edward F. Lawlor, Ph.D., dean and the William E. Gordon Professor, who attended along with about 200 others. The dinner was the largest one yet sponsored by the School of Social Work.
Olin Business School alumna Shen Zhao (MBA, 2004) goes through the buffet line Nov. 22 at the annual Olin Thanksgiving Day dinner at the Charles F. Knight Executive Education Center. The event was bursting at the seams, Olin officials said, attracting more than 400 students, faculty and alumni.
