Fall Fest kicked off this year on Sept. 16 with music, contests, and free food. This gave new students the chance to socialize and learn more about clubs on campus.
As per tradition, Fall Fest was held outside in front of the Hatheway Cultural Center from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. D.J. Stan White provided music for the students while they performed in dance, hula hoop, and tug of war competitions.
Lewis and Clark Community College has over 23 different clubs for students to join, all of which were given the challenge of designing their own unique table for a chance to win money to go toward the club.
The tables were set up in two lines on either side of the sidewalk, so students could walk around and see all of the associations they could join.
Every table had free giveaways and games for students to play, and information about the club to interest students in joining. The Bridge gave away newspapers and candy, while WLCA had students play games to win old CDs.
“This is my second year here, but my first Fall Fest and I’m very excited about all the fun stuff to do,” said Frank White, LC computer information systems student.
This year, Student Activities advisor Jared Hennings changed up the activities a bit by adding a velcro wall to take place of the laser tag set up from last year, as well as an inflatable rock wall instead of a plywood wall.
“I feel good about Fall Fest. It’s a great way to get everyone excited and make them feel good. I also think the activities allow the students to feel like they can have fun,” said Amanda Rising, Nursing student.
