The hall is decorated in shades of orange, yellow, brown, and red. Orange-colored pumpkins. Red and yellow paint. Beige and brown haystack. The music plays. The Polaroid camera clicks. The catered food diminishes. The Henna tattoo table crowds, as does the pumpkin painting table. The pumpkin painted as a face with long lashes wins first place in the competition. A pumpkin painted as a starry night sky wins 2nd place. A pumpkin painted in a scary black and white face wins third place. The hall is decorated in shades of orange, yellow, brown, and red.
p.s. Joseph’s cousin came to visit us at New Paltz to get a feel for the school, and we tried to work our magic to show her the best of the best here. We attended a Fall Fest party on Saturday night within our dorm lounge, and she loved the college vibe she received from the festivities. So, here’s to what the fall brings!
p.p.s. Wishing Noeli the best! She’s actually a Quest Bridge finalist. That being said, she’s still seeking out other options and hopefully SUNY New Paltz is one of them.
