Recommendations for Thanksgiving Break Activities

Thanksgiving Break is finally within reach (or maybe it has already started for you)! The week off from classes is a great opportunity to relax, reset, and rejuvenate. While the holiday break might look different this year, there are still plenty of ways to enjoy the much needed time off. We asked students what activities they recommend for a safe and relaxing break.

  • Scrapbooking
  • Napping
  • Christmas Decorating
  • Cooking, backing holiday treats, eating Thanksgiving leftovers, stuffing my face with food
