Tickets available for Thanksgiving Dinner

Those attending this year's Thanksgiving Dinner should enter through the west doors of the Ohio Union. Parking at the Ohio Union garage will be free to visitors on Thanksgiving.

The traditional Thanksgiving Dinner will include 120 turkeys, 432 pounds each of green beans and corn, 320 pounds of corn bread and 120 pies. Over 150 volunteers from throughout the university community will assist in serving the traditional turkey dinner. View a photo gallery of last year's Thanksgiving Dinner.

The event began 20 years ago as a gathering for 25 graduate students at Hale Center and today includes broad participation from students who live outside Ohio as well as many international students and scholars.

Thanksgiving Dinner is a Signature Event at Ohio State and is supported by the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, the Office of International Affairs, University Residences and Dining Services and The Ohio State University Alumni Association.
