miguel galiano socialogy of art soph“Spending time with family, and being in the United States, Because I’m from Spain. We don’t have Thanksgiving in Spain. So it’s pretty cool to have this celebration here and be a part of it. I love it. I love to have celebrations here that I’m not able to have in my country, and it’s interesting to learn about the culture as well.”

sara marin business marketing soph“I think food. I love turkey, and I like potatoes. I’m from Columbia. In Columbia, we don’t have Thanksgiving in November. It’s in December, so my tradition is kind of different. Everything starts on December 1. So on December 1 to December 31, it’s like celebrations and meeting and reunions with your family in Columbia. But here I just go to my parents’ house and eat turkey and potatoes.”
