Though it was officially the fall season, both campuses held their annual Fall Festivals on exceptionally warm days. Families enjoyed a variety of activities hosted by student clubs and organizations including face painting, pumpkin decorating, and a Best Costume contest. On the Southern Utah campus, there was also an obstacle course, photo booth, pumpkin bowling, a corn hole toss, and, of course, a game of Operation. The festival took place in conjunction with the Boo Dash 5k, a race hosted by the City of Ivins that included music, selfie stations, and trick or treating along the course.
For RVU’s annual Trick or Treat Street, the Colorado campus hosted witches and wizards, tiny superheroes, a sleepy Alice in Wonderland, and a buzzing bumble bee. There was also a rare sighting of Waldo in the Finance Department. Or was he in the Dean’s Suite? On the Southern Utah campus, emojis, the PowerPuff Girls, a Chiquita banana, E.T. and a unicorn enjoyed a plethora of sugary treats.
