Thanksgiving Feast 2017

It's that time of year again for MCAD's great big Thanksgiving Feast.

Every November, MCAD caters a huge Thanksgiving dinner for students. It's a really nice thing the college does, especially for those who can't go home for the holiday break. You can smell the food all the way from the college center to the Main Gallery. This year, the line of students spanned all the way down through the skyway to the Morrison Building.

MCAD makes sure that everyone is able to eat at the feast, regardless of their schedules or diets. Students with night classes get to skip the line, plus lots of vegetarian and vegan options are always available.
