Thanksgiving Dinner 2020

Thanksgiving Dinner

We are excited to invite all students to the annual Thanksgiving Dinner, Wednesday, November 18, from 5-8pm. This event has always been marked by a season of gratitude, and this year will be particularly special as we celebrate the opportunities we have had to be at Baylor this semester. It will look a little different so here are some details to be aware of as you plan for the evening.

Students with Meal Plans
Students with meal plans are welcome to grab their dinner and join us in an outdoor location on campus to enjoy the beautiful fall weather.

  • All meals are the same and dining hall seating will be closed. We encourage you to enjoy our beautiful campus before you leave for the holiday!
  • Students living in Memorial, Alexander, Brooks, and Kokernot can pick up their Thanksgiving meal at Memorial Dining. Please enter the 8th Street side for pick-up.
  • Students living in East Village can pick up their meal at East Village Dining.
  • Students living in Martin, North Village, Collins, or Penland can pick-up their meals at Penland Dining.


Students Without a Meal Plan
There will be two drive-thru options for students without meal plans. The drive-thru locations can also be used for pick-up if you do not have a vehicle or would prefer not to drive.

  • Penland Hall: Enter 4th Street via Dutton Avenue for pick-up location
  • East Village: Enter 3rd Street via Bagby for pick-up location


An Opportunity To Give Back
Additionally, as we enter this season of giving, we want to provide an opportunity for students to serve your fellow students. The Thanksgiving Dinner is a great way for every Baylor student to receive a free meal.

Unfortunately, we know that not every student can receive the amount of food necessary to thrive at Baylor. We understand that 25% of Baylor students have some form of food insecurity. Therefore, we urge you to consider donating $5 to The Store, Baylor's on-campus food pantry, through the Sic Hunger initiative! Please donate through the link below.



We look forward to celebrating with you! Happy Thanksgiving!
