Turkey Toss is a long standing Vanderbilt University holiday tradition, where senior leaders express thanks to faculty and staff for their hard work and dedication to the University.

Vanderbilt University’s 2019 Turkey Toss is scheduled for Friday, Dec. 20, 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. in a new location at E. Bronson Ingram College, Dining Hall. Full-time benefits-eligible faculty and staff of the University can choose one of five options: turkey, tofurky, mug set, VU tote bag, or bamboo utensils (while supplies last). You must check in and show your gold Vanderbilt University ID card with the iClass symbol before picking your gift. Gifts are available on a first come, first served basis, so come early to ensure best selection.
