Figure out who is staying on campus and make a group chat
Break the ice by naming the group chat “Friendsgiving” (don’t forget the turkey emoji). This is definitely a gutsy move, but there is nothing more gratifying than a full table for the Thanksgiving meal that will be served at Dunster on Thursday, November 26. Stuff your face, there will be no judgment.
Continue your Friendsgiving festivities by preparing for Black Friday Shopping
This is arguably the best and most dangerous part of Thanksgiving. Whether you decide to go to Newbury Street or to the Wrentham Outlets, make sure to wake up early to get the best deals from your favorite stores. Beware of ruthless moms looking for Christmas gifts, seemingly sweet old ladies, and line-cutters who might leave you wishing you had slept in.
Become homies with the Pilgrims
Grab the Kingston/Plymouth Train and head to Plimoth Plantations to learn more about the history of Thanksgiving.
Lastly, throughout your Friendsgiving break, make sure to take plenty of pictures and post them on Instagram #flybythanksgiving to let your roommate know that, after all, homemade pumpkin pie is overrated.
