Our First Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving Dinner & Celebration for International Students 
Presented by MISPO
November 16, 2012 

The Multicultural and International Student Programs Office (MISPO) recently hosted a What are you thankful for? Living in America Series presentation and Thanksgiving Dinner & Celebration for the International Students at Hofstra University.  

The Thanksgiving Dinner & Celebration was brought back due to popular demand with an amazing attendance of 75 International Students!!!

The Living in America Series presentation by the Assistant Director of MISPO, Sonia Fernandes, consisted of a history lesson and an explanation of the purpose of the Thanksgiving celebration in the United States.  The presentation also included an explanation of the popular shopping craze of Black Friday and Cyber Monday!




                                         What are you thankful for? 
The international students discussed with their peers what they were thankful for in their lives.  My two favorite responses were: 
I am thankful that Hofstra University accepted me to come study here!
I am thankful that I have a nice roommate and we are very good friends!

                                        Art project: 

Make a turkey! MISPO student workers
Christina and Lauren planned a fun art project for the International Students. They demonstrated to the students how to make their own Thanksgiving turkey made out of colored paper, feathers and a paper bag!         


Great Job MISPO team!!!
