However, the Student Union is no longer offering the Turkey Shuttle from the university to Penn Station in New York City and to New Jersey. Turkey Shuttles were offered to students in 2019 and 2021, but not in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The first round of shuttles are scheduled for the November break for Thanksgiving, according to the post. Buses will leave the university from the Admissions building on lower campus. In order to board the shuttle, students must present their ticket, reads the post.
