Enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday, Wildcats! See you Monday.
“Never has America had greater occasion for Thanksgiving than today. Think of the manifold blessings for which we should be profoundly grateful…”
Leslie’s illustrated weekly newspaper, v. 127, no. 3298, November 23, 1918, details the ending of World War I. View the full newspaper on Villanova University’s Digital Library.
Our students are always on the move! That’s why, while we will miss you dearly, we hope our whole community will take this Thanksgiving break to relax and recharge with family and friends.

Thanksgiving is only a week away! In preparation for that day of feast, family, and friends, we asked students what their favorite Thanksgiving food is. Here is what they said.
“Turkey because it tastes good and is a traditional food”
-Jacob Artz, Communication, Class of 2023
“Stuffing because it’s a family tradition. My family makes the best stuffing and I’m willing to fight anyone on that”
-Keith Mathews, History, Class of 2021
“BBQ because I am from Texas and my family always gets BBQ for Thanksgiving”
-Kamryn Dow, Political Science, Class of 2022
This week’s Curious Cat is brought to you by Allie Reczek, Lindsay Sassion, and Liam Brassington, three of our wonderful undergraduate student workers in the Falvey Memorial Library Communication & Marketing Department. Keep an eye out for them every Thursday, asking students their opinions on a range of subjects and topics.
