Recipes from the Northeastern community. Messages of thankfulness. The history of Thanksgiving. International students experiencing the holiday for the first time. Here, we share all this and more.

In this video, she teaches marathon veteran and Northeastern web developer Roger Donaghy how it’s done. Video by Lee Delulio/Northeastern University
