On a crisp autumn day at the Homewood Campus, students flocked to the site of a pick-your-own-pumpkin and produce patch to celebrate the change of season and mark the arrival of Hoptoberfest, the university's annual fall festival. Pumpkins sprawled across the Freshman Quad and crafty students adorned them with goofy Jack-O-Lantern stickers and custom creations. A local farm supplied the pumpkins and barrels filled with apples. Members of the Hoptoberfest committee dished out fall fare—donuts, cookies, and slices of fresh-baked apple pie—to be enjoyed while gathering around on stacks of hay. The pumpkin patch kicked off a week-long series of fall festivities on campus.
