道尔顿状态 Students Host Fall Family Festival for Campus and Local 社区


The leaves across campus are changing from hues of green to golden yellow more and more every day. Fall has arrived, and 道尔顿状态 is gearing up for the Fall Family Festival.

道尔顿状态’s Campus Activities Board (出租车) will host its annual Fall Family Festival on Thursday, 10月. 从5点到8点.m. at the Pope Student Center Patio. The event is free and open to the public and will include a haunted house, 在脸上画画, 儿童爱畜动物园, 气球艺术家, 游戏, 糖果车站, food tucks hayrides.  

Fall Family Festival is a student-led event hosted by 出租车 in collaboration with Student Life to celebrate both the campus and local community. 出租车 is a student-run organization that strives to enhance the student experience through quality entertainment, creative programming and community involvement.

“This will be my second year planning the Fall Family Festival, and this is by far my favorite event we host,” said Cameron West, 道尔顿状态 student and 出租车 co-director. “Seeing the community, students and families show up is an incredible sight to see. Last year we had the pleasure of having 1,143 attendees for the event, and this year I want even more visitors!”

This is the first year Alex Sanchez, student life coordinator at 道尔顿状态, is assisting with Fall Family Festival. Sanchez is the new 出租车 staff advisor, and said she is excited to be part of this year’s event.

“What I have heard from students and my fellow colleagues in previous years is this event has united the college campus with the greater Dalton community. My hope is this trajectory continues,” said Sanchez. “I truly feel like this event is illustrative of 道尔顿状态’s mission. It focuses on promoting 积极领导 and collaboration among our students. It is only through the collaboration of our many different student organizations that this festival can be a positive contribution to our Dalton community.”
