Guess what—it’s a Her Campus E-Board takeover! We’re super excited for this spectacular fall season, and we’re celebrating with some of our favorite activities. Here are some suggestions for spicing up your fall fun:

Catherine Gwinnett ‘24

This semester, I am enrolled in a ceramics class. In the interest of getting a good grade in this class, and because I enjoy it, my favorite fall activity has been spending time in the art studio on campus. I have been able to throw on the wheel and work on some sculptural pieces. While I don’t possess any real talent for art, I might venture to claim that I show signs of improvement! The studio also features a glass curtain wall, which allows the fall foliage in the courtyard outside to be visible from the classroom. I would highly recommend taking some art classes on campus!

I know this is cliché, but apple and pumpkin picking will always have my heart! Though I have yet to go near Conn, I just love doing it so much and have so much fun every time I go! There is something about a crisp fall day spent among autumnal fruits that is unlike anything else—especially when it is just cold enough to finish the day with baking and hot apple cider. At Conn, I am ALWAYS down for a good arboretum walk!

My favorite fall activity, you ask? Celebrating my birthday! And, of course, everything related to Halloween. Having a birthday five days before the best holiday is a blessing, and trust me when I said my costume parties went hard when I was a kid. Specifically, my favorite activities include shopping for decorations, hanging up decorations, dressing up in costume (usually a reused dance fit), attending the Conn Halloween Dance, of course, and doing it all with a Dunkin’ pumpkin coffee in hand. I’m also a rabid leaf peeper, so let me know when you want to go for a fun fall drive featuring my lovely and serene “Fall Drive” playlist:
