Students gathered at the Pavilion on Nov. 1 to take part in various activities at the annual Fall Fest celebration.

"Fall Fest is an event where we team up with other student organizations and have them host activities," Emily Banda, student programs and activities coordinator, said. "We just celebrate the season. Students are recovering from homecoming, holidays and midterms, this is just a way for them to kick back, have fun and eat some food."

Students enjoyed music, free t-shirts and food at the festival. Activities included a mechanical bull, pumpkin painting and an area for students to take fall-themed pictures with friends.

"We also have students that are showcasing their own talent," Banda said. "Some students wanted to perform, and we have a stage, so they can go up there and sing if they want."

A variety of organizations were present for the festival, including UCPC, AMAS, Rambelle Rugby, the Political Science Association and Kappa Sigma. Fall Fest provides an opportunity for organizations to showcase what they do within their clubs, Banda said.

"My favorite part was hanging out with everybody and eating the food that the organizations had," senior Shannon Franklin said.

Seciah Quezada, sophomore, said she went to Fall Fest because she is an officer for AMAS and the club wanted to be a part of it. She also wanted to hang out with other students and have a good time, she said.

Diany Gomez, sophomore, said she went to the festival because she is a part of UCPC. She said she enjoyed being with her friends and that her favorite part was taking pictures with them.

"I came to Fall Fest because I saw a flyer for it and my friends and I wanted something to do after classes," senior Rachel Boezinger said. "We came here to de-stress and enjoy some food and listen to music. I’m enjoying it a lot so far. It’s really cool."
