A wealth to be thankful for… Happy Thanksgiving!

Yesterday, each of us bloggers experienced Thanksgiving in our individual ways. Some of us went home, some celebrated at Yale, and some didn’t really celebrate at all. Wherever we were though, we each took the time to write down some of the things at Yale we are most thankful for, and share them with you. We’re thankful for …

Being able to study a whole new language
