Chancellor Michael Drake helped serve a Thanksgiving meal Nov. 24 to UC Irvine students unable to travel home for
the holiday. More than 200 students gathered in Pippin Commons for traditional fare including turkey, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie.
Chancellor Drake serves students -- many of whom hail from outside of the U.S. and have rarely, if ever, experienced this American tradition before.
The chancellor dines and visits with students after enjoying the feast.
