Not all students are able to go home for the holidays, and with Thanksgiving around the corner, everyone should be able to enjoy a traditional meal that reminds them of home.

The majority of businesses within walking distance of campus are going to be closed Thanksgiving and some of them won’t be open again until the Nov. 30, but there’s still hope.

Students can cut back on the time in the kitchen and help support Stop Hunger Now when they purchase a Thanksgiving Dinner To-Go from the food pavilion. The full meal costs $55 dollars and 25 percent goes to Stop Hunger Now. The meal can feed up to eight people and includes turkey, mashed potatoes, country cornbread dressing, seasoned green beans, turkey gravy and harvest bread. The deadline to order the full meal is 2 p.m. Nov. 24.

However, if $55 is a little deep in the pockets for students, the food pavilion also has some à la carte items available for purchase on a first come, first served basis. These items include a whole 10-12 pound slow-roasted or Cajun fried turkey ($27.99), two quarts of mashed potatoes ($7.99), two quarts of cornbread dressing ($7.99), two quarts of green beans ($7.99), one quart of peppered gravy ($4.99) and one dozen rolls ($4.99).

The pavilion is also pre-ordering $8 10-inch pumpkin, pecan and double-crusted apple pies.

Full meals and pies can be pre-ordered by phone at 940-565-3804 or online at The pick-up times for any Thanksgiving food, pre-ordered or a la carte, are Nov. 26 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Nov. 27 8 a.m-noon at Kerr Hall.

Another alternative to a Thanksgiving ramen noodle and pop tart is available right on the edge of campus at IHOP. IHOP has some rather festive holiday menu items, including a classic ham or roasted turkey dinner, pumpkin or pumpkin cheesecake pancakes and toasted marshmallow and gingerbread hot chocolate.
