Albany- Albany State University students say they can't wait to go home for the holidays, and they say today their professors and faculty members helped them get in the holiday spirit, by serving them Thanksgiving dinner.

Many faculty members say this is an event they look forward to each year, because they are able to show students they really care.

ASU president, Portia Holmes-Shields says, this dinner helps create better campus relationships. Students say even though they don't mind standing in line for turkey, corn and cranberry sauce, they say the main reason why they wait is to see the smiling faces that fill their plates.

This is the seventh year that Albany State University faculty and staff members have served students Thanksgiving dinner.
