Thanksgiving weekend is just around the corner. For many University of La Verne students, this is the first holiday of the year when they get to go home. For others, it is just a time to relax, catch up on homework and spend time with their loved ones. Most importantly, it is a time to give thanks.

Although students may come from a variety of different backgrounds and different walks of life, most are thankful for the same things-friends, family and the opportunity to attend college at the University of La Verne.

These are the things that some students are thankful for:

"To be alive."
