Free lunch Wednesday to celebrate fall

The Office of the President will host a free lunch during Fall Fest on Wednesday, November 2, from noon to 1:30 p.m. on Turtle Island Walk.

The event started in 2013 as part of the University’s 50th anniversary celebrations. It returned last year because of high demand, according to special events manager Mary-Ann Rennie

“People really enjoy Fall Fest,” Rennie says, adding that the University plans to make it a continuing tradition. “It’s a chance for faculty, staff and students to all be together and mix and mingle.”

The event will feature vegetarian chili and rolls, apples and hot chocolate. The Lancer Nation pep band will perform live from noon to 1 p.m.
