Quad: What’s your favorite Thanksgiving food
Sydney: My favorite holiday food is easily mashed potatoes covered in gravy.
Quad: What are you most looking forward to this holiday season?
Sydney: I’m most looking forward to having no classes and being able to spend quality time with my family and friends.
Francesca Bernhardt Class of 2023
Quad: What is your favorite Thanksgiving food?
Francesca: Pumpkin pie for sure.
Quad: What is your favorite thing about the holiday season?
Francesca: My favorite thing about the holiday season is the prayer right before meals because I feel like everyone gets wrapped up in the meal prep and getting ready for guests or going some place and I think the prayer before meals to be thankful for what you have is really important because that’s what the holidays are about.
