Gettysburg College students enjoy a Thanksgiving dinner with friends

What do you do with 224 turkeys, 2,000 students, and 100 faculty and staff volunteers? Serve Thanksgiving dinner.


Each year the dining center hosts Thanksgiving dinner for the students. Seated with their friends, students are served a roasted turkey with all the fixings by faculty and staff. Students carve their own turkeys and celebrate the approaching holidays with their friends. Many Gettysburg College alums remember their Thanksgiving dinners and it truly has become a Gettysburg College tradition.

Another fall culinary treat was the annual Sigma Chi Chili Throw-down.
