VIDEO: Celebrating tradition with Servo Thanksgiving 2018

A fork or a spoon?

With what utensil do you eat mashed potatoes? For the majority of our students, it’s a fork. For our other students, it doesn’t matter as long as they’re eating Servo’s annual Thanksgiving dinner with friends.

At Gettysburg College, our annual traditions elevate the pride we feel in our community, and the importance of coming together to reflect on our shared values.

Waiting in line outside for hours for the delicious turkey dinner, students reflected on things that they were thankful for—family, friends, professors, and JMR. Check out the video above to find out more about what our students are thankful for or watch it on Youtube. View photos from the event below and on Flickr.
