Friday evening will cool down into the mid 50s, perfect for a thick sweater or fleece jacket to spend the night out and about.
The class council is making the most of it and sponsoring the first annual FestiFall on Friday, Oct. 24 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. outside the lower SSC.
Throughout the evening there will be food, games, hot apple cider and a costume contest open to the campus. The costume contest winners will be announced at 6 p.m. Also at 6 p.m., there will be a pie-eating contest to watch, featuring selected contestants which include a few familiar faces or “Cedarville celebrities.”
Around 6:30 p.m., everyone is invited to roast marshmallows by a bonfire that will be at the pit between the HSC and the ENS.
Phil Hord, the senior class president, is heading up this event and guiding all the class councils in the process.
“All the classes bring a different thought to it and each have their own role now in the event itself,” he said.
With all class councils collaborating and taking on specific areas of responsibility, Hord said, FestiFall provides a unique opportunity for new student government members.
“We are also supporting the freshman class council who were just elected and showing them how to put on event,” he said, addressing the wide scope of details and people to consider when putting on an event. “So this is a chance to learn for them as well.”
While this is the first annual FestiFall, a similar event called FallBack used to take place every year, according to Hord. Class council is revamping the old FallBack, an SGA event which featured similar activities and was held outside campus dorms, by making the change to utilize all of class council for FestiFall this friday.
