Fall Fest to showcase student life, organizations

With the hundreds of organizations and clubs that can be found on a college campus, it would be nearly impossible to get to learn about all of them.

Luckily NKU has Fall Fest, an annual event where students get to interact with the members of the many organizations on campus. Fall Fest will be held 10 a.m.- 2 p.m. Sept. 28 on the Student Union Plaza

Courtney Gilliam, a senior political science major is a member for Wine to Water, a campus organization focused on the impact of everyone having clean drinking water.

“Wine to water is one of the newest organizations on campus,” Gilliam said. “It’s based on an international organization which is also called Wine to Water, and what they do is they go to different countries and they just work on meeting their needs to provide clean water.”

Wine to Water will be one of the many student organizations participating in Fall Fest.

“I think the good thing about Fall Fest is that we’re just not having an event where you guys can come up and take stuff and know our name, we’re actually getting you to experience some of the things that happen in those countries.” said Gilliam.

Logan Jones, a junior sports business major, and the president of the Sports Business club is working to get students aware of the club. He believes Fall Fest is the perfect opportunity to do so.

“Fall Fest is a great way to really get more people involved because I feel like the academic side of organizations don’t get all of the press because we don’t put ourselves out there as much,” Jones said. “We’re going to be working on just getting people aware of the club, and aware of the positive effect that we can have if they do decide to join us.”
