On Tuesday, Northeastern’s International Student and Scholar Institute cooked up a traditional Thanksgiving meal for students, faculty, and staff, who also learned about the holiday’s history and culture.
With Thanksgiving set for tomorrow, ‘Black Friday’ and ‘Cyber Monday’ are just around the corner. Given the current economic uncertainty, will consumers still turn out in droves to take advantage of the holiday sales and one-day deals? We asked Fleura Bardhi, associate professor of marketing in the College of Business Administration, to examine how consumers and retailers will approach Black Friday shopping and promotions this year.
The university will host a series of events — from meals to movie nights — for students to share the holiday on campus and abroad.
Campus may feel rather empty this weekend, with scores of students flocking back home for the Thanksgiving long weekend. But if you’re staying around campus, there are still plenty of ways to make the most of the holiday, thanks to a full slate of activities sponsored by Student Affairs.
