The activities, which all took place in DeHority or the Honors House, included a Backyard Bake-Off on Monday, Trivia Tuesday, Which Craft Wednesday, Fall in One Minute, a night of Minute to Win It-style games on Thursday, and an Open Mic Night on Friday.
Which Craft Wednesday allowed students to make door decorations, watch movies, and enjoy cookies and apple cider from 4-8 p.m. in the Exhibition Hall. Student Honors Council member Katie Norman was the chairperson for Wednesday’s committee.
“Which Craft Wednesday this year is following a fall theme,” Norman said. “We have templates for pumpkins, scarecrows and fall leaves, but everyone can make whatever they want. People can come to do something relaxing. It’s free, so it won’t bust the budget, and it gets everyone into the season.”
Stephanie Kailey, a freshman at the Honors College, said she came down after receiving a Snapchat from a friend and seeing the signs around DeHo.
“I thought it would be fun, and that I could make something for the roommate and I,” Kailey said.
Adam Borchers, a freshman, got a little more creative than the templates offered at Which Craft Wednesday.
“I made the Wicked Witch of the West. It’s been fun, and I’ve enjoyed the crafts,” Borchers said.
As Student Honors Council members, Borchers and Kailey both worked on the committee for the Backyard Bake-Off as well.
“The food was great Monday. The Cherry Dump Cake, which won, was delicious,” Borchers said.
Kailey agreed and explained that the treat’s baker won the grand prize, a fall oven mitt.
Honors Week ended Friday, Sept. 26, closing a week of food, fun, crafts, games and talents.
