Giving Thanks

Most students may not have been home for Thanksgiving, but that doesn’t mean they didn’t celebrate with family! From enjoying festive holiday meals in the dining halls to worshipping during the Praise Service to making memories on Eagle Field during Turkey Bowl, students were overflowing with thankfulness this holiday season.

“At PCC, friends become family,” said junior Priscilla Meyer (AL). “I had so much fun watching the Turkey Bowl and hanging out with my people. We’ve been a family since freshman year—I couldn’t imagine college without them!”

Sophomore Caitlyn Campbell (CO) spent the day with her brother and friends. She said, “I love that PCC gives the opportunity for us to watch some soccer and have delicious food on this special holiday. I’m really thankful for God’s constant reminders of Himself in everything.”

This year, Thanksgiving at PCC took on a new meaning for senior Josh Berlin as he played in the Turkey Bowl Championship. “It was probably some of the most excitement I’ve ever had,” he said. “We were so happy because that’s what we worked so hard for all semester.” Josh’s collegian, the Epsilon Chi Vipers won their first Championship by scoring a goal with just 30 seconds left in the game. “I knew we could win it, it was just a matter of playing well,” Berlin said.

Performing at the Turkey Bowl half-time show were The Skyriders!, a team of nationally famed athletes, who mesmerized the crowd with their incredible trampoline acrobatics.

The day concluded with many students attending the Fine Arts Series production of A Christmas Carol. Others enjoyed playing games in the Sports Center or just relaxing with friends.
