It's time to give thanks

Thanksgiving brings feasts of buttery turkey, tasty stuffing, mashed potatoes, homemade cranberry sauce, and warm pumpkin pie. And for us college students, Thanksgiving is also a much-needed, mini break—a time to take a deep breath before plunging into the hell that is finals.

No matter what you do or where you go, Thanksgiving break is important to any college student — freshman or super-senior, graduate or undergraduate, American or international.

But this year, Thanksgiving break is bittersweet for me. As a senior, it’s my very last. It’s yet another mark on the list of things that I’ll soon have to say goodbye to at Emory.

While I’m looking forward to graduation and all that awaits me in the years ahead, it breaks my heart to think of all I have to leave behind at Emory: walking through the beautiful campus; lounging on the grassy Quad; enjoying lunch in the sun outside Cox Hall; catching up with girls in the Tridelta lodge; and so much more.

So I’d like to say, Emory students, savor your time here. These years fly by in the blink of an eye. Before you know it, you’ll be in my shoes—heading into your very last semester at the University and wishing you could do it all over again.

This Thanksgiving, I’m thankful for Emory.
