Thanksgiving Dinner

An annual event, Thanksgiving Dinner brings together students, faculty and staff and community members unable to return home for the long holiday weekend.

Every year, The Ohio State University hosts one of the largest Thanksgiving Day dinners on a college campus. An estimated 1,600 guests attend the event, which is free to attend and takes place in the Ohio Union.

The traditional Thanksgiving Dinner includes turkey, gravy, green beans and mashed potatoes, served with corn bread and pie.

An Ohio State Signature Event, Thanksgiving Dinner is supported by the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, the Office of International Affairs, the Office of Student Life's Dining Services and The Ohio State University Alumni Association.
