Fall is upon us, and students at Missouri Western are ready for whatever changes the season will bring. There’s an aura of excitement around campus as the weather cools and the leaves begin to transform. Computer Science major Jacob Teasley explained why students are so fond of the season.
“The aesthetic elements of fall are intriguing.” Teasley said. “People love the weather because it’s a nice sweet spot. When you’re around a bonfire, you get warm and cold feelings simultaneously.”
This sentiment of fall weather is shared by many Griffons, including Senior Sadie Lysaght.
“I don’t like when it’s too cold outside, but I also don’t enjoy when it’s really hot.” Lysaght said. “When you add a breeze into the equation, It’s a perfect mix.”
There are plenty of fun holidays right around the corner. Although students have become too old for trick or treating, there are still reasons to be excited for Halloween. Griffon R.J. Cousins is looking forward to the holiday, and has already begun making plans.
“Fall is a time where people come together and have a great time.” Cousins said. “For halloween, I plan on doing a group costume with my friends, and we’ve already thrown some ideas out there.”
While many students dress up, some are just excited to see what costumes others have in store.
“I like seeing other people dressed up.” Lysaght said. “It’s fun to watch kids knock on the door and give them candy. I enjoy seeing their costumes.”
For many students, the events leading up to Halloween are just as fun as the holiday itself. Spooky decorations, fall themed drinks, and trips to the pumpkin patch are all traditions involved with the season. Schweizer Pumpkin patch has become a popular destination in the St. Joseph area, and is a perfect place to visit for Griffons looking to get into the Fall spirit.
“It’s so pretty, I love going to Schweizer and picking out the perfect pumpkin to carve.” Lysaght said. “I usually keep mine simple, but my sister picks the hardest designs and spends hours on them.”
Those who aren’t looking forward to the holidays still have reasons to love the season. Sports enthusiasts have plenty to be giddy for. The return of NFL football, NBA basketball, and MLB playoffs all coincide during the Fall.
“I’m excited for football.” Teasley said. “Chiefs games are electric.”
As the Fall semester nears its midway point, many Griffons need a break. The crisp weather, warm bonfires and vibrant leaves provide a nice change of pace. Break out the flannels and pumpkin spiced lattes, because Autumn has officially arrived
