Tech students share expectations for Thanksgiving break

By Thomas Stodghill, IV

Many college students are looking forward to being home for Thanksgiving with family and spending time to relax before returning to classes. 

This break can give students time to catch up on much needed sleep, watch shows on different streaming services, but most importantly, spend time with friends and family for Thanksgiving. 

Kosi Anadi, a Louisiana Tech industrial engineering major from Slidell, said he is looking forward to seeing his hometown family and friends. He is excited to eat his mom’s cooking as well. His favorite Thanksgiving memory is catching up with old friends and family.

“Our conversations never skip a beat, despite our time away from one another,” Anadi said.

Sophie Edwards, a Tech marketing major from Baton Rouge, said she is looking forward to spending time with her sister and cuddling her two puppies at home.

Edwards said her favorite memories of Thanksgiving are sitting on her grandparents’ porch, watching her cousins play baseball, and listening to her grandfather play the fiddle.

Leslee Bennett, a communication major from Grayson, said she is spending her Thanksgiving break a little differently. She is going to Nashville with her parents to see a Brett Eldredge concert.

Bennett said her favorite memory of Thanksgiving is when she gets to relax on her parents’ porch and read or listen to music.
