Fresno Pacific University students, faculty, administrators and staff celebrated Thanksgiving with the annual turkey-and-trimmings lunch November 16, 2023, in the Special Events Center on the main campus. Among the traditional activities was the Parade of Nations (pictured), featuring the flags of the 37 countries outside the United States from where FPU’s international students come. Emcee Jeff Jones, a staff member and double graduate of the university, interviewed two students—one an adult learner and the other traditional undergraduate—about their experiences at FPU, and President André Stephens, Ph.D., talked about all we have to be thankful for. The food was prepared and served by Provider food service and the cost of the event was covered by donations from the FPU Board of Trustees. (FPU photo by Megan LeBlanc)
