Party – If you’re not the only one that is staying on campus for the holidays be sure to get some of your friends together to celebrate. Throwing or attending a party is the way to go! Get some friends together, plays some fun games, watch movies and just have a good time.
Make dinner – Whether you’re staying at campus on Thanksgiving or Easter, it is always fun to make a nice dinner. Invite as many people as you’d like or invite people to come up and see you. If you know of someone in the same situation hang out with them and have a nice dinner. If not them, and you have a significant other that is the perfect way to celebrate your Thanksgiving as well.
