The autumn season is practically here. Make sure that once those leaves start falling, you have a roster of fun activities to keep you occupied. Luckily, SDSU students can enjoy a variety of options in the Brookings community.
Here are six great fall activities to consider.
Go Pumpkin Picking
Stop by Sanderson Gardens to pick your own pumpkins and take some spectacular friend photos. If you're feeling particularly competitive, challenge your roomies and friends to a pumpkin-carving contest.
Visit a Haunted House
If you're up for a trip to a haunted house, then you might want to check out Fear Asylum. This place, which is located across from Pioneer Park at the corner of 6th and Hughes avenues, also offers a unique escape-room experience. Go ahead and get your Halloween spirit on!
Plan a Movie Night
Some of the best autumn nights can be spent watching a great movie—scarier Halloween fare or otherwise. Get cozy in the lounge area in your residence hall, and invite your floormates to join you. Did you know your residence hall front desk offers a variety of movies you can rent and watch? Stop by your front desk or ask your community assistant for more information.
Make Caramel Apples
This perfect bonding activity could be a messy one—but very delicious in the end! Gather your friends and make some caramel apples that you can share or bring home to your family. There are plenty of easy, res-hall-friendly recipes available online like this one.
Go on a Nature Adventure
If you like the outdoors, visit Dakota Nature Park. The park offers lots of walking and bike trails, along with options to rent equipment. You can also host a picnic in the park—just remember to pick up after yourself, as there aren't trash receptacles available for visitors.
