More than 120 international students, representing 26 countries, celebrated Thanksgiving in the Banquet Room in Burke-Griffeth Hall on Sun., Nov 19. The international students attend Northwest Christian University, Lane Community College, and the University of Oregon.
For many, it was their first American Thanksgiving. They were treated to turkey and all the trimmings before capping off the evening with square dancing. The event was hosted by Harvest Church International and NCU’s International Student Support Committee. Many members of Eugene-Springfield’s international community also attended the dinner and dance.
