Happy Thanksgiving, Bobcats! This time of year is more than pumpkin pies and stuffed turkeys — Thanksgiving is a reminder to pause the noise of everyday life and thank those who are important to you.

At Ohio University, students interact with many staff and faculty members. Often, students form relationships with them that make a lasting impact.

Students Pat Daley and Liam McCamish thank Esports Director Jeff Kuhn for "making a place where students feel accepted and welcome."

Christine Blay knows Assistant Director of Diversity and Inclusion Programs Vanessa Morgan Nai as more than an instructor. She thinks of her as a "school mom," saying, "thank you for taking me as your school daughter, even with everything you have to do."

Juliana Colant looks to Assistant Dean for Student Services Paula Linscott as a professional mentor, reflecting "when I bring big ideas, you dare me to think bigger and help me come up with a game plan to face the challenges."
