Now more than ever, Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on the things that matter most. Here is a look at what Binghamton students are thankful for this year.

As the weather gets colder and the work piles up, students like to turn to their favorite movies and TV shows for comfort. I, personally, have started binge-watching "Gossip Girl" (shoutout to Binghamton alum Billy Baldwin) again. Whether you choose something new or pick up where you left off on an old favorite, everyone is watching something this fall. Here are some movies and TV shows that Binghamton students are binge-watching.

We have reached that point in the semester -- the point where midterms still linger, but finals are already on the horizon. With the amount of work I have, the days have begun to blur together. Recognizing how difficult this semester has been, the Dean of Students Office has kicked off Stress-free Bing a little earlier than usual. From yoga to delicious dessert nights, there are all kinds of relaxing and stress-reducing events leading up to finals.

Family Weekend may be virtual this year, but it is still a great time to become immersed in the Binghamton experience. Whether together or apart, you and your family can still participate in Family Weekend events. I know that I will be watching the live performance of ‘Macbeth’ with my family. From a cappella performances, to contests and conversations, there is something for every family to do.

It can feel overwhelming and isolating, but there are plenty of resources out there to help with a smooth transition.
