More than 300 stu­dents plan to chow down on turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie in the Stetson East Dining Hall on Thanksgiving.

The hol­iday feast — spon­sored by the Office of Stu­dent Affairs — is part of a series of pro­grams designed for stu­dents who will remain on campus for Thanks­giving recess.

Stu­dents studying abroad or on inter­na­tional co-​​op may also take part in Thanks­giving with a North­eastern flair. The Office of Alumni Rela­tions, for example, will sponsor a Thanks­giving dinner stu­dents and alumni in London.

We are excited to partner with our col­leagues in NUin, study abroad and co-​​op to host the fourth-​​annual UK Thanks­giving Dinner. On Thursday, more than 40 alumni, stu­dents and friends will gather to cel­e­brate the hol­iday with one another. It is just another great example of the strong bond that Huskies have with each other and with North­eastern,” said Jack Moynihan, vice pres­i­dent of alumni rela­tions and The North­eastern Fund.

Local hol­iday pro­gram­ming through Stu­dent Affairs includes a shop­ping trip to the Wren­tham Outlet Mall; $5 tickets to the New Eng­land Aquarium and free screen­ings of “Super 8” and “The Hang­over Part II” at AfterHours.

Tamu Schwoef­fer­mann, an admin­is­tra­tive assis­tant for housing and res­i­den­tial life, will accom­pany stu­dents on the Black Friday outing to Wren­tham. “Offering these pro­grams is very impor­tant, espe­cially for first-​​year inter­na­tional stu­dents,” he said.

Schwoef­fer­mann, SSH ’09, rou­tinely remained on campus for Thanks­giving. As the Port­land, Ore., native recalled, “Having some­thing to do with other stu­dents who hung around campus was great.”

For the third con­sec­u­tive year, the Inter­na­tional Stu­dent and Scholar Insti­tute will offer a Thanks­giving Host Pro­gram, which con­nects fac­ulty and staff to inter­na­tional stu­dents inter­ested in expe­ri­encing a true Thanks­giving dinner.

Last year, David Hau­tanen Jr., the director of inter­na­tional recruit­ment and strategic enroll­ment ini­tia­tives, hosted three Chi­nese stu­dents in his Dorch­ester home.

The stu­dents, who indulged in sweet pota­toes and green bean casse­role, helped carve the turkey and taught Hau­tanen and his family some new card games.

It was great,” Hau­tanen said. “They were very inter­ested in learning about being part of this tradition.“

At the end of the day, all people like to eat and have a good time,” he added. “Even though we come from dif­ferent places and dif­ferent back­grounds, we are fun­da­men­tally the same.”
