    A popular Wilson tradition - the annual Thanksgiving dinner for students, staff, faculty and guests - was held Thursday, Nov. 17. Jensen Dining Hall was packed and the mood was fun and festive. Guests feasted on roast turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, corn, green beans and of course, pumpkin pie. Students spontaneously broke into Song Wars following the meal and many lingered long after to chat and visit with fellow Wilson community members. And, true to tradition, the uneaten portions of turkey at each table were divided up among guests, who took the leftovers home to enjoy later.
