Chancellor Nicholas S. Zeppos and his wife, Lydia, hosted an early Thanksgiving dinner Nov. 20 in the Student Life Center’s Commodore Ballroom for approximately 120 students staying on campus during the holiday break.

“My hope is that you really try to find some time over this break to put work aside and take care of yourself,” Zeppos told the students.
