This Thanksgiving faculty, students and staff gathered in Lundy-Fetterman School of Business for the annual Thanksgiving dinner.
The dinner kicked off with guest speaker Morgan Pajak, who talked about “Faith and Food” in Lynch Auditorium. Everyone then gathered around the table, grabbed a seat and enjoyed food and conversation in the halls of Lundy.
“Campbell is a place where students from all walks of life get to explore their faith, build community and prepare for their personal and professional lives,” said Renee Green, director of leadership development and student success for the School of Business. “To me, Thanksgiving dinner celebrates all of that. It invites everyone to gather around the table and break bread together, to get to know one another – professors, students, staff from all backgrounds and all over the world.”
Turnout at this year’s dinner was great, Green said, with both new and returning students taking part. It’s become an important annual event to business students, she said, especially international students — and students who live out of state and might not have a chance to travel home.
“Going to the business school’s Thanksgiving dinner as a freshman reminded me what the holidays are all about,” said Claire Witt, a freshman Trust & Wealth Management major. “Being away from home has been a change this year, but events like this show how amazing the community is here within the business school.”
