The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) Harvest Dinner started 29 years ago, as a "taste of home" for students who were not able to spend the holidays with family and friends. This year's dinner will be Monday, Nov. 17, from 4:30 p.m., to 7:30 p.m., at the Baptist Student Center (BSC) located on Sparkman Drive. What used to be a home-cooked meal for a few students, quickly turned into a major university tradition. Mona Foroughi, UAH's director of International Student and Scholar Services, and a dedicated team of volunteers now prepare dinner for approximately 500 people. The Harvest Dinner committee is now accepting donations of desserts and door prizes.
