Thankful To Be A Red Fox

Only a few more days till Marist Students hurry on home, to be with family and friends for the Thanksgiving season. If you are like me, a food lover, Thanksgiving can be seen as one of the best holidays of all time, where it should be illegal to leave a crumb on your plate.

But, registration was not the only thing that Marist Students are thankful about being over. This past Friday, Marist Fox Tale blogger, Julia McCarthy, took over the Snapchat to see what students were thankful for this holiday.
