The fall season is filled with midterms, projects, and general academic rigor, but Berry students have proven to take advantage of various school events that provide a break from their studies.
Students recently participated in Octoberfest, a day-long celebration of all things autumn on Berry's picturesque Mountain Campus. Activities included pumpkin carving, hayrides, and enjoying sweet candied apples and s'mores next to a crackling fire. And on the main campus, aspiring country singer Brynn Marie performed her hit single "Band-Aid on a Bullet Hole," among other songs.
The increasingly chilly weather proved to be an excellent excuse for students to participate in the SOUP-Off, a soup tasting fundraiser for the Sponsorship of Orphans in Uganda Project (SOUP). The money raised will help provide food, medical care, education, shelter and clothing to underprivileged children in Uganda. Students raised $1,500! KCAB won with their cheesy potato soup made by Brittany Farmer. Leadership Fellows came in second with their homemade chicken noodle by Mackenzie Ross.
