The weather finally cooperated and cooled down a bit, just in time for a beloved annual tradition: Pumpkin Fest, which took place by the Farmers Market in Matador Square on Tuesday, Oct. 25. Organizers with Associated Students brought 700 pumpkins to campus. Students, and even a few of their furry friends, lined up for a free pumpkin and chose just the right one from the “pumpkin patch.” Folks then flexed their creative skills, and decorated their gorgeous gourds for… Halloween! Some of our students really brought their A-game with their costumes on Monday, Oct. 31. All of this during midterms! Check out how Matadors celebrate fall in SoCal in these photos.
