Volunteer State Community College hosted the Fall Festival and International Food Day at the Thigpen Commerce on Oct. 24.

The event included putt-putt, corn hole, connect four, presentations on foreign language and other subjects, booths about health and fun activities to enjoy. It was used to help students relax and get into the festivities of fall.

SGA President Haley Brazel and head of the Fall Festival shared her experience and joy of the occasion.

“I think this event is fantastic. The food is delicious and the games that were set up had a lot of people around them, and the vendors we had were getting attention for their cause,” said Brazel.

Activities like the Volunteer State Volunteer’s Club booth allowed students to reflect on and appreciate their favorite traditions and memories of fall. Allie Hemmings, Kayleigh Payne, and Sara Eaton organized the booth.

“We had students and faculty write their favorite fall traditions on a big poster. It was really fun to see all the activities everyone put down, but it was also really cool to see their process of choosing a favorite,” said Eaton.

“I put on the poster that my favorite fall activity is a hayride. My church has a hayride and we sing songs and wave to the people we pass by. It is so much fun,” said student Lili Carter.

“I had a great time with my friends. Corn hole and the other mini-games looked awesome. I enjoyed the food. My favorite fall activities are carving pumpkins, going through corn mazes, and drinking pumpkin spice lattes,” said student Sierra Fellows.
