Third Annual Thanksgiving Celebration of Diversity

November 14, 2019

Thanksgiving as an American tradition has a rich and varied history. Much of what actually happened in the winter of 1621 in Plymouth (or 1619 in Jamestown) has been turned into myth, but the core concept of coming together to share a meal, conversation, and laughter has always rung true.

Keeping that truth in mind, we asked each Volgenau School of Engineering department to donate two pies (homemade or store-bought) for a gathering on Tuesday, November 26 from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. in the Atrium of the Nguyen Engineering Building. We invite the entire VSE community come together enjoy conversation, laughter, and a slice of pie at the Third Annual Volgenau School of Engineering Thanksgiving Celebration of Diversity.

Much like the initial attendees at the Plymouth Thanksgiving, our gathering will be filled with people who have different experiences, customs, traditions, and tastes. For this reason, we welcome the international array of flavors or types of pie – sweet, or savory, flan, or quiche, or a classic American apple pie – all varieties are welcome.  

Mark your calendar and plan to attend.
