This year’s Fall Festival was a knock out as always. Each fall semester, the Office of Student Life and Housing hosts the Fall Festival as a way for students to unwind, enjoy delicious food and just have fun.
The event was held on Oct. 31 on Lakeside Lawn. The first 100 students that showed up got a free Fall Festival t-shirt, a tradition they do every year.
At the Fall Festival, there is always good music as well as good food. There were funnel cakes, popcorn and corn dogs, but also caramel apples to get the students in the fall holiday mood.
Along with good food were plenty of activities for the students to enjoy. There were big inflatable hamster balls that let the students run into each other, along with an inflatable obstacle course and an inflatable ring that allowed students to suit up in inflatable gloves and hit each other.
Fall Festival is not only a place for students to have fun, but also bring awareness. Ruth’s Cottage, the center for domestic violence victims, had a booth set up during the Fall Festival.
Ruth’s Cottage has always worked with ABAC to join in on certain events and gives away free t-shirts as well, along with cups, pencils and other little knick-knacks. Ruth’s Cottage uses the Fall Festival to get the student’s attention and bring awareness.
The Fall Festival is always a great time for all students on campus. Coming in the spring semester is the annual Spring Fling. More details about this event will be released closer to that time.
