Lewis & Clark Community College welcomes new and returning students with its annual Fall Fest. At the event students learned about clubs and organizations on campus, participated in various activities, met fellow students, and were given lunch.

This year the festival was held on Wednesday, Sept. 24 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in front of The Hatheway Cultural Center. The festival area was divided into two adjoining sections.

A row of tables lined the sidewalk where students lined up to get their lunch which were occupied by members of the various clubs and organizations at the event. Many of the groups had relevant activities on their tables to engage students as they passed by each table.

A few of the groups represented at this year’s Fall Fest included, L&C Student Government, Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, LC Pride, Veteran’s Club, and Blazer Cheer Squad.

 

 

 

Phi Theta Kappa handed out information on joining their Honor Society, registering to vote and becoming an organ donor.

“This is my first Fall Fest, I think it is awesome, gorgeous weather and there are a lot of people, this is a great way to talk to people and to have a face for the club,” Co-President of PTK, Stephanie Bushby said.

New this year, in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, there were also different types of Latin dancing lessons for students.

“This year it’s more active and more entertaining. It is awesome to watch the dancing,” L&C sophomore, Jacqi Lane said.
