Students kick off Fall season with Oktoberfest

TROY, Ala. (TROJANVISION) — Students were ushered into the Fall season during the University Activities Council’s (UAC) Oktoberfest.

Although no beer was involved, attendees still got into the holiday spirit with food, games, music and inflatables. The event drew a large crowd.

“It’s a really good vibe, really a lot of fun,” said UAC President Derrick Nobles. “I’m glad a lot of people came so far.”

Although there were many activities to take part in at the celebration, many students had a very simple reason for going.

“I heard there was free food,” said freshman Bella Taylor.

Despite the large number of festivalgoers, the Quad provided a large open and comfortable place to dance, play games and socialize with friends.

“It’s pretty cool,” Taylor said. “I like that it’s dark. I like that there was food. I like the music.”

The UAC has more events planned for later in the month that students are invited to check out. One of them will be Halloween-themed.

“We also have a haunted house that’s planned at the end of the month,” Nobles told TrojanVision. “Also pumpkin painting. We also having a possible scary movement night.”

UAC plans to post signs around the campus to remind students of upcoming events.
