On October 19th the annual Fall Festival will be taking place at Volunteer State Community College. The activities will be on the outside on the Quad (the field outside the library), if it rains then it will be moved inside to the Pickel Field House (Gym). A free lunch will be provided for those who stop by the CAB sand art table and get Fall Festival Bucket List ticket.
They will then need to stop by eight tables in order to receive the lunch. Lunch will start at 12:30, a concert will start at 12:45 on the Quad, the concert will feature the Alex Michael Band.
There are multiple activities available at the Fall Festival “this year we will have corn hole, volleyball, a video game station with E-Sports, ping pong with College Republicans and make your own sand art with CAB”, said Coordinator of Student Activities Tabitha Sherrell.
Clubs have the opportunity to sponsor tables at the Fall Festival “Spectrum and RSO will be sponsoring the Sumner County Humane Society Dog Toys where students can visit the table and make homemade dog toys that will be donated to the humane Society” said Sherrell.
The Fall Festival offers a variety of tables that engage students with different interests “I loved the Fall Festival last year, it was fun to look at all the different tables and people.
I was surprised at how much food I got to sample. I hope there is as much this year! Other than the food, it was fun to walk around campus; I got to show my sister some of the clubs that I am in and the tables that we sponsored. I hope there is a big turn out this year”, said student Rachel Edwards.
Food Day will also be a part of the Fall Festival “We are also partnering with Kelly Ormsby who is sponsoring Food Day the same day. She will have the following tables at Fall Festival: UT extension Office, Second Harvest, USDA, Soup Sampling! Farmers Market (two tables).” Said Sherrell.
The Fall Festival is an opportunity to bring your friends and family to campus and let them see what your college is like, “I am going to the Fall Festival this year and I am hoping to join some new clubs.
I felt too frazzled at the beginning of the year to join any clubs, now that I have settled in I think it will be cool to get involved at school and make some new friends and join some student led clubs and activities.
Even if I don’t get to join any clubs at least I got to hang out with my friends and start off the fall season with a Fall Festival, right? I think it will be fun to see the turn out, hopefully the weather gets the hint and gives us some fall weather to go with the festival”, said student Mackenzie Norset about the festival.
