The Innovation Network (TIN), together with The International Student Association (ISA) and Women in Learning and Leadership (WILL) will host a Friendsgiving event on Nov. 17. The event is free and open to all and will be held at the Student Life Center.

TIN’s theme for the Fall semester is “Better Together,” and this event will be both a welcoming event for new students and a celebration of the diversity of the Brookdale community. Last year’s Friendsgiving event, sponsored by TIN, was very successful and featured an array of purchased and homemade food, beverages and desserts.

This year’s event will feature free food and beverages, games, prizes, activities, and guest speakers with a focus on having fun while meeting new friends in a relaxed, safe environment. Festivities will be on the upper level of the Student Life Center.

“The ‘Better Together’ theme is aligned with the Global Citizenship Project’s focus on ‘Transcending Divisions’ as students discover – through shared activities like Friendsgiving – that we are more alike than we are different,” said Jeanette Falotico, TIN’s president.
