“I thought the weekend as a whole was a lot of fun and had something that could appeal to everyone. The variety of activities was really nice,” Kotowski stated.
Thursday, September 22, kicked-off the weekend with Trivia Night in DeHority Complex’s Exhibition Hall. Teams assembled and faced each other in categories pertaining to Disney, pop culture, history, and the 90s.
“Trivia Night was very fun and challenging. Questions were seldom missed, so it was hard to get back in the lead after one was missed,” Allison Albright, a freshman nursing major, said.
The Fall Festival occurred on Friday outside of DeHority. Music was playing, and students joined in the dancing and eating. Popcorn, iced cookies, and drinks were passed around, as were Frisbees and cornhole bags. There was even a station for face-painting led by freshman Max Jolly, who is an architecture major.
Saturday was a day to burn off some energy. Catch the Cardinal was a parody of capture-the-flag, and students who participated dashed around DeHority in search of their team’s cardinal.
Sunday ended the weekend with a brunch at the Honors House. Students could assemble their own breakfast burrito and mingle with friends in the refreshing fall air. Michaela Karcher, a freshman nursing major, and Logan Gemmill, a freshman architecture major, had a blast at brunch.
“The brunch was delicious, and I enjoyed getting to know some more Honors students while playing cornhole and singing to the music playing,” Karcher said.
“The food at the brunch was very tasty, and the camaraderie with friends was an added bonus,” Gemmill stated.
