Monthly scorch: Oktoberfest

Maggie Pilcher

The Union was transformed into an island of activity for this month’s Scorch on the Porch.

It was a mixture of Homecoming festivities and a twist on the age-old German tradition: Oktoberfest-sans the alcohol. Students took a break from the monotony of classes, Thursday, to take part in the festivities.

“It was pretty funny to see such different themes at this month’s Scorch on the Porch,” said Paige Prockish, freshman. “I looked one way and saw Halloween decorations for Oktoberfest, and then in the other direction I saw flowered leis and hats adorned with tropical scenes for Homecoming. It was kind of like a meshing of two completely different worlds.”
