Fall Festival a hit with area children
Oct. 30, 2015
Scores of monsters, superheroes, goblins and princesses invaded the Academic Quad
on Thursday night for the college’s annual Fall Festival.
Sponsored every year by the Housing and Student Engagement offices, the event
featured supervised trick-or-treating, a costume contest, face painting, carnival
games and an inflatable bounce house.
Joe Strickland, South Quad Area Manager for Housing, said the festival has become
a student favorite.
“All of the games and booths were manned by our students,” he said. “They also
conduct the trick-or-treating in Hawkes Hall. Every year, we hear how much they
love interacting with the kids. I think they have almost as much fun as the children.”
Non-perishable food items and monetary donations gathered during the festival
will be donated to local food banks.
