Sometimes staying on campus throughout the holidays is the better option (especially if you have to choose between Thanksgiving and Winter Break due to financial restrictions, work or school obligations). Although you may feel blue about not spending time with friends and family from your hometown, you’ll see them in a few short weeks – so no need to stress!
Get in the holiday spirit with these 3 Holiday Dorm Room Ideas below:
# 1: Join in on your school’s match up list with a faculty member for Thanksgiving.
Smith College’s Thanksgiving tradition encompasses inviting students who remain on campus for the break to join a faculty or staff member at their home for the celebration. Check into your campus match up program or Thanksgiving tradition to see what options are available to you.
# 2: Participate in your local Turkey Trot
Instead of carbing out and stuffing your face all day, check into the local turkey trot run. It’s a great way to get involved with the community and burn off a whole lot of calories before you eat your weight in bread rolls and turkey.
# 3: Feast with your peers
Most campuses offer a Thanksgiving Dinner for the students who stay on campus. It’s a great way to meet new people and participate in the festivities so you’re not stuck in your dorm by yourself for the holidays.
