From witches to snack machines, South students, faculty and staff showed off their creativity during Fall Fest Oct. 29.

Dancing, games, candy and snacks were enjoyed while students discovered new clubs South has to offer.

The Veterans Association challenged students to complete a number of pushups to receive candy.

Students could talk to several campus organizations such as the Anime Club, Gay-Straight Alliance and Phi Theta Kappa honor society. Representatives offered games and candy as well as information about their clubs.

South student Nathaniel Wright said the candy and crowd of people in costumes drew him in.

“I didn’t know what was going on at first,” he said. “I was on my way off campus, and I see a ton of people crowding around these tables. It’s cool knowing I have different options when it comes to clubs.”

Everyone was invited to take part in the costume contest held at the end of the event. Students could sign up for three categories — judge’s favorite, scariest and most creative. Each winner received a prize.

South students Johnathan Henderson and Emily Bell both won judge’s favorite by being Marty McFly and Jennifer Parker from Back to the Future.

South student Kaelyn Hardeman won most scary with her dead biker costume she created.

“I loved [Fall Fest],” she said. “It took me an hour to put this together. It was a lot of hard work.”

South student Jailon Thomas won most creative with his vending machine costume that had people turning their heads.

“This is the best day ever,” he said. “I turned something worthless into something valuable. It started out as just a wardrobe box, but now I turned it into something like a moneymaker. You can actually even put money in this.”

Thomas said it took him two weeks to put the costume together.

“This is the third time I made one of these,” he said. “I made one for my aunt, and she won a contest too.”
