On the 22nd of this month, September, Fall Fest, or as Jared Hennings, the student activities coordinator at Lewis and Clark, puts it “a golden opportunity for students,” will be held on the main campus lawn directly behind Hathaway Cultural Center. This outdoor location makes mask-wearing optional, social distancing is still encouraged when viable. The festival will begin at 11 a.m. and end at 2 p.m.
Fall Fest is the first major event of Lewis and Clark’s 2021 academic year. Fall Fest is an opportunity for the students of Lewis and Clark to get more familiar with and even get involved in the clubs and other student run organizations that operate at Lewis and Clark. Every club and organization will be running their own table where they will be fielding student questions, offering informational and club-related material, as well as recruiting new members. Each club table will be competing for best presentation which entails cash prizes for those that place.
Fall Fest is also a recreational event that will provide students with leisurely activities and food. Fall Fest attendees can expect catering, a selection of games, as well as a DJ providing a lively sound for the event. For those that are fans, there will be coffee samples being provided at the Student Government Association tent. These samples will be offered by Germania, which now offers a 10% discount for Lewis and Clark students and teachers at its Godfrey location.
