Studying abroad doesn’t mean you have to give up celebrating holidays from back home. Our fall students and Center staff made Thanksgiving their own with elaborate dinners, community potlucks, and even a good old fashioned barbeque! Check out these Instagram-worthy photos from their events.
In Dublin, Thanksgiving wasn’t just one day, it was three! Staff and students celebrated Thanksgiving with a pitch-in dinner, complete with a huge table full of various Thanksgiving delights. In the spirit of giving back, the student-run Community Council also organized two events open to the public and other American students in Dublin. The proceeds from the events benefited a local charity. Check out the featured Instagram story on @IESabroadDublin’s account for a full recap of all the fun!
The @IESabroadShanghai students had a packed schedule on Thanksgiving. To help burn some calories before the evening’s feast, they enjoyed a morning walking tour of Shanghai’s former French Concession. The celebrations continued with a fun-filled student talent show and a big dinner at the Shanghai Marriott to commemorate the Center’s 10-year anniversary and Thanksgiving!
