To all full-time students, full-time faculty, and full-time staff:

Thanksgiving is an important part of our nation’s religious tradition and a significant holiday for us. We have many reasons to be thankful.

I hope that each one of you spends time in the company of loved ones.

To get the Thanksgiving holiday off to a great start, you are invited to the DeSales University Community Thanksgiving Dinner on Monday, November 19 from 4:30 – 7:00 p.m. in the University Center.  The Student Life office will provide music during dinner.
