The holiday season is a time to celebrate with family and friends, and it is usually a time when favorite family recipes encourage eating binges. As much as we all love the holidays, these all-day-eating-and-drinking holidays often result in overeating and weight gain.

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching, which means it is time for family dinners and gatherings. With the presidential election coming up next year, the topics of conversation at the dinner table can escalate when hot topics, especially politics, are brought up during discussions.

Kent State University’s International Students and Scholar Services in the Office of Global Education is hosting a Thanksgiving dinner on Nov. 24 for international students who want to experience a traditional Thanksgiving dinner.

Dinner will be held from 6-8 p.m. in the Kent Student Center Ballroom Balcony. Students pay $5 to enjoy the feast.

Hari Prasad Tadaka, Kent State digital sciences graduate student, says he plans to attend the dinner, and it is his first Thanksgiving in the United States.

Four graduate students brought their passion and gift of music 2,500 miles from Colombia, South America, to Kent State University.
