If you’re like me, a college student from south Texas whose favorite season is Autumn, it can be challenging trying to make the transition from Summer. The year before, I researched places and ideas in my college town that would help me get into the fall spirit. Here are my four suggestions for embracing the endless festive activities and atmosphere during this time of year!

Halloween Costumes

Whether it’s a group costume or you’re going solo, planning a Halloween costume that makes you comfortable and confident can be a fun project to get you pumped up for the holiday. There are numerous ideas on any social media platform including TikTok, Pinterest, and Instagram.

Carve or Paint Pumpkins

One of my favorite activities for the Fall is carving / painting pumpkins. This is an easy activity because it can be done anywhere and the materials such as paint, carving tools, and pumpkins are sold at almost every store. You can find materials for this at Target, H-E-B, Walmart, and the Dollar Store.

Haunted Houses

Personally, Halloween is one of my favorite Holidays, and makes the season of Fall so much more exciting. The scary decorations, costumes, and vibe around town give me such a good nostalgic feeling. In my opinion, one of the best ways to celebrate this holiday is to go to haunted houses, and luckily, College Station has a pretty great selection. Including Delusions Scream Park and Wicked Woods.

Delusion Scream Park is located at 11624 FM2549, Bryan, TX 77808, and Wicked Woods is located at 10436 N Dowling Rd, College Station, TX 77845.


Lastly, decorate your living space! My roommates and I went to Home Goods and Target to pick up flannel blankets, pillows with scary images, bats to stick on the walls, candles that smell like cinnamon, and a couple of festive signs to hang around the house. It completely transformed the vibe of our apartment, making it way more cozy in honor of the change of season.
