Each year, the Language Program staff serves a traditional Thanksgiving meal to our Intensive English (ESL) students who come from far and wide to learn English at Rice. This year we had a full house at the Grand Hall in the Rice Memorial Center on November 15.
For many of the students, if not most, it is the first time they have experienced an American Thanksgiving and the first time to eat foods like pecan pie or pumpkin pie. Some brought along their families for the experience.
We’ve put together a video of the event so you can see the excitement that was in the air that day.
The staff of the Susanne M. Glasscock School of Continuing Studies wishes you and your family a very happy Thanksgiving!
