Thanksgiving Day at ACT

Some memories are unforgettable, remaining ever vivid and heartwarming as Thanksgiving Day at ACT was! A variety of activities were held that day starting by the thanksgiving lunch served by the college! It had most of the traditional foods that best represent the thanksgiving lunch and also by eating all together created the feeling of being like home. Also there was a Thanksgiving wall in which students wrote what or whom they are thankful for.  So, If you are really thankful, what do you do? You share! That’s exactly what Act students and staff did!
