Fall Festivities

Students share their favorite Fall activities

With all of the fun events happening at and around Emory this fall, a few students wanted to share their favorites!

Pumpkin patch

Pumpkin Patch

Last weekend, I went to a pumpkin patch and corn maze with my sorority. It was so fun and relaxing to spend the day outside in the beautiful fall weather. Going on hayrides with my sorority sisters is one of my favorite things to do in the South!

Apple PickingApple Picking

Over fall break, my friends and I embarked on a road trip to a local apple orchard. We loved the crisp air, the sunny weather, and of course the delicious apples! What struck me the most was the view of the Blue Ridge Mountains from the orchard; it was beautiful and calming in a silent, majestic way.

Drag ShowEmory Pride Drag Show

The Emory Pride Drag Show is probably one of the best and most dynamic events of the semester! Three members of our dance team, Adrenaline, are in the Theta Nu Xi Multicultural Sorority, which celebrates equality and culture. As such, Adrenaline definitely supports the LGBTQ community and wanted, like all of Emory, to show its support. As one of the campus’ newer performance groups, we were grateful just to be a part of such a popular event. Winning first place at the drag show competition meant more to us than we can say! We can’t wait to continue to support Emory Pride at this event for many years to come. (@jakeosmarinphotogrtaphy)

HalloweenTrick-or-Treating at President Wagner’s house

Helping out with Halloween at the Wagner’s has been one of my favorite events of freshman year so far. President Wagner (or J-Wags, as we call him) and Mrs. Wagner are the most down-to-earth people, and they’re so fun to talk to. It was exciting to see the reaction on students’ faces when they saw how decorated the house was—it looked like a haunted mansion out of the movies! There were some great student costumes; one of my personal favorites was Cosmo and Wanda from the Fairly Odd-Parents. Lord Dooley even made an appearance, and I got to take a selfie with him! So I can check both trick-or-treating at the President’s house and a selfie with Dooley off my Emory bucket list. I was proud to be a part of such a unique tradition at Emory!
