Give Thanks Loyola

With only three days left before the Thanksgiving holiday, students rush to finish up assignments, confirm their flights, clean their rooms, and pack their bags in order to return home for the holiday. The Thanksgiving holiday is the 1st opportunity students have to reconnect with their families and hometown friends during the semester. All anyone can think about at the moment is how great it will be to be back at home, eating tons of home cooked food, and taking a break from assignments and studying before we return for the storm of finals. However, Thanksgiving should also be the time in which students reflect on the semester and give thanks. Personally, I am thankful for all of the friendships I have gained this semester, the opportunity to be at such a wonderful university, and the fact that I  have survived the semester thus far. Similarly, in the 2008 Maroon, Loyola students were thankful for their friends, campus dinning, and the break from academics.
