Athens, OH 20 September 2019 –
Since it’s starting to get colder, I’m excited to get into the Fall mindset with all the events around Athens.
Most Saturdays there are football games; sometimes they even have evening weekday games (those are the best). The Marching 110 makes every game exciting, no matter how the football goes.
Their half-time show is always my favorite part of the game. It’s especially exciting when the alumni come back for Homecoming to play and dance along with the current members.
Then, there’s the preparation for Halloween. Every year a few of us chemical engineers buy pumpkins and carve them as an AIChE (American Institute of Chemical Engineers) event. Seeing what other people decide to carve is the most entertaining part.
Around this time of year, I start to decide what my Halloween costume is. Ever since I moved to Athens, Halloween has become very important to me. Last year, a friend and I went as Tigger and Winnie the Pooh. The year before that, my group of friends dressed up as characters from Scooby-Doo.
I still have to decide on what to be this year! As a senior, I feel like it’s my last chance to experience all the amazing and beautiful parts of Athens. I know that I’ll miss it when I’m gone!
