Friendsgiving, BU-Style

On November 17, at Marciano, Warren, and West, BU Dining’s annual celebration of Thanksgiving—a traditional meal of turkey, local mashed potatoes, stuffing, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie, and (much) more—was on offer, a bit early, but who’s complaining? At West, not Toby Makoyawo (CAS’25) (left), Jada Smith (CAS’26 (right), and fellow diners Matthew Spicer (CAS’25) and Ijeoma Ezechukwu (CAS’26) (not pictured). Smith bypassed the Thanksgiving menu offerings, but not Makoyawo: “It has flavor!”
