Pumpkin Carving!!
Students, come show off your pumpkin carving skills. OAC (Outdoor Adventure Club) is once again holding the pumpkin carving contest Wednesday, October 19th from 6:30p.m.-8:30p.m. The pumpkin carving will take place between Smith and Pierce/White Hall. There is no cost to carve a pumpkin. Students are asked to sign up before the event at the OAC booth during the lunch hour 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. on October 13th, 14th, 17th or 18th so that no pumpkins go to waste. If students are unavailable during the lunch hour and still wish to sign up or have any other questions they can email OAC@bvu.edu.
