Thanksgiving buffet kick starts the holidays (EDIT)

The holidays are just around the corner. With the upcoming holidays, there are a lot of different upcoming events. The first event on campus was the Thanksgiving buffet. This was on Wednesday, Nov. 18th. The buffet was for everyone to celebrate on campus before Thanksgiving break. 

“The buffet was really worth the money and was the best food I have ever had at Washburn,” said Logan Runnebaum a freshman nursing major.

The buffet was 10 dollars at the door or nine dollars in advance. It was for all students and faculty. It was a transitional Thanksgiving buffet with foods such as, turkey, ham, potatoes and cream corn. For dessert there there was pumpkin and pecan pie. 

A lot of people attended the event and everyone seemed to enjoy it. All of the seats were full from the start to the end of the buffet.  It is the best buffet that Washburn offers all year.

“I always miss the buffet and really wish I could have attended it.” Said David Cox a mass media senior.

Thanksgiving break starts Wednesday, Nov. 25th and classes resume Monday, Nov. 30th.  With holiday cooking and Black Friday shopping coming up it, is nice to be able to go and eat at a buffet without having to do any of the cooking or preparation.

If Washburn dining put on more buffets, it would keep more people on campus and generate more money. Many people feel the food is overpriced, however it is nice to be able to bring people together over a quality meal as the holidays begin.

  1. I would add a comma instead of period after David Cox quote. Also said should be lowercase. Nice headline. The 6th paragraph should be "coming up, it is" ....

  2. I also noticed the period after the quote, so change that. Also, in the first paragraph combine the third and fourth sentence so it's not so choppy. Great job!

  3. Good edit! Again, the quote needs to be fixed like Kelly and Kara stated. Also, get rid of the "th" on the dates, those don't need to be used in AP style.

  4. You corrected the dates and headline, which was good! However, the amounts of money still need to be corrected as well as the quote attributions. You also repeat "there" twice in the third paragraph's last sentence.

  5. "It was a transitional Thanksgiving buffet with foods such as, turkey, ham, potatoes and cream corn" I think you meant it was a traditional Thanksgiving buffet.

  11. Good job! Just one thing, "with foods such as, turkey, ham...", no comma is needed after "as".
