The Student Life office hosted the first Harvest Fest event on Thursday, Oct. 25 at 5 p.m. in the quad.

Activities at the event included alien laser tag, a bouncy house, hayrides and pumpkin picking.

There were food trucks, live music, giveaways and a dance performance by the MCC dance club.

Clubs and other organizations attended the event, including Blue Colt Radio, the Veterans Association, Kappa Delta Pi, and the Hispanic American Club.  

Freshman Alexander Salazar said, “My favorite highlights were the alien laser tag and the hayrides.”

Student Life coordinator, Mary Tutalo, said, “I love the clubs that came and supported the event. It showcases how cool our students are here, and what the clubs do. We had tons of clubs that came out, like the dance club. They did a performance of ‘Thriller’ that was awesome; and the music club came out, and they like to have jam sessions throughout the night. It also gave them a perspective of things.”
