5 Things To Do In Cresson This Fall

Pumpkin Pie, Hayrides and Pumpkin Patches are Fall staples everyone needs to expereince!


Cresson, Pennsylvania. We're a small town with much love for our community. For most of us, we're in Cresson to go to school; most students attend Mount Aloysius College. We're a campus comprised of students from not only all over the country, but also the world. And it just so happens that fall is our most beautiful season. With the falling leaves and epic sunsets, we have everything a small town has to offer.

And if you're a student or even a community member just looking for something to do, look no farther! I've comprised a list of all kinds of activities and events to partake in during this glorious fall season!

1. Take a walk around the Mount Aloysius College Campus.

As the seasons change, campus transforms into a magical world cloaked in leaves. The trees change from greens to beautiful reds, yellows and oranges and they make the perfect scene for events, walks and selfies. With the new trail on campus, students and the community members can travel through the woods and pass the pound, taking in the breathtaking nature of our campus, as fall comes upon us.

2. Take some time to visit Cresson Heritage Days.

If hay rides, music, crafts, food, activities, and car shows are something you enjoy, head on down to Front Street from campus to experience all that our quaint little town can offer. Cresson Area Heritage Days almost reminds me of the Autumn Festival from “Gilmore Girls” that happened in Stars Hallow.

3. Visit Vale Wood Farms during their Pumpkin Patch event.

If the activities and décor aren't enough to draw you in, the food will! All the staples of fall can be bought during the event, including PUMPKIN PIE. You can even get a group together and visit and tour together!

4. Go to Weakland Farm’s Corn Maze.

This farm has everything for someone looking for the complete fall experience. The corn maze could be a great way to start the day; gather a group and experience the fall, fresh morning air. Then, you have the options of enjoying a wagon ride, learning about barnyard animals, visiting the pumpkin patch, snacking on some staples of autumn, or purchasing some décor and crafts. There is even an indoor play area for the kids!

5. Get involved and volunteer.

Keeping with the fall themes and events, it only seems fitting to volunteer with some community festivals. Volunteer at the Hollidaysburgh 11th Annual Pumpkinfest. There will be great pumpkin food, games, and crafts! It is always great to get involved and be a servant leader, especially when it involves the best of seasons.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Everything You Need To Know About COVID-19 Outcomes, Because It Has To End Eventually

You've heard a lot of possible outcomes thrown around, let's break them down.

If you log into any social media app, you will be overwhelmed with self-appointed experts, preaching the correct way to end this coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic from the comfort of their La-Z-Boy chair. Aside from those dramatic children on TikTok, it's all anyone can talk about. There's an obvious reason for this — the pandemic has taken our world and flopped it on its head, bringing confusion, angst, and an obnoxious amount of sourdough bread into our lives.

All this to say, it's easy to get lost amidst the storm of arguments online. Instead, it's best to break down what's actually going on so we can have an educated perspective as we look to work together to move past our current predicament.

Raven Baxter Was Our Favorite Teen Fashion Icon And We're Still Recreating Her Best Looks, Here

We take a look at Disney's most fashion-forward show to recreate some iconic looks.

Disney Plus

I grew up in the early 2000s. And, like any child at the time, I was hooked on Disney Channel shows. My favorite was and is "That's So Raven."

Raven is a teenage psychic navigating life in hopes of not revealing her powers. Only her family and close friends know she has them. Her powers oftentimes get her in trouble, which is where the comedy comes in. But, they also teach her and her friends sentimental life lessons.

Sobriety is so underrated, even when it comes to healthcare. The instant gratification of a substance or drink isn't exactly as gratifying as some people may think. For those of you who've never been hungover, consider yourself lucky — a hangover is biologically horrifying. A hangover is not instant gratification, so who are we kidding when people say "it just feels good." Being healthy actually feels good and won't hurt you or your bank account in the morning. The best way to be healthy is to choose sobriety.

Ah, yes. The juice cleanse. Yet another popular diet trend that promises to magically solve all of your health, nutrition, and weight issues.

When you take a close look, juice cleanses aren't as magical as they are made out to be, and in fact, they might do more harm than good.

Unauthorized Plastic Surgery Is Totally Unethical, And Happening WAY More Often Than We Know ‬

Plastic surgery for cosmetic enhancements has you looking more botched than beautiful and it’s painful to see.

Coming from someone who could afford numerous cosmetic enhancing procedures I would never in a million years cut up my face or my body. I'm pretty emphatic and when I watch these brainwashed victims with bandages and chronic inflammation (swollen lips) I literally feel their pain.

I've never been big on casual wear or athleisure. Most people who know me have never seen me in sweats. But, I do have those two or three pairs of sweats I can't resist climbing into the second I get home, the newest addition of which is the extra cozy Odyssey crewneck sweatshirt I got in an XL size to feel as close to being wrapped in a blanket at all times as possible.

In the past several months, I've started to expand my horizons, considering the ways in which I can bring my small wardrobe of comfortable bedroom clothing into the public. I've experimented with topping leggings and a sports bra with a denim jacket to the park, and an oversized sweatshirt worn as a dress, cinched at the waist with a belt when I'm out wearing leggings.

How To Dress Like Your Favorite 'Insecure' Characters — Without Spending $2,000

We take a look at the fashion of Insecure season 4, and how you can create these looks yourself.


Insecure is one of my favorite shows ever. It really encapsulates what it's like being a Black 20-something, trying to navigate the many ups and downs of life. Issa, Molly, Kelli, and Tiffany are living their best lives in California while dealing with the twists and turns that come with that.

From life to relationships to careers, this show truly captures everything that runs through my mind on a daily basis. The show has a sense of realness and a strong frankness that makes you gravitate toward the characters and root for their success.
