5 Ways To Have Fun This Fall Around Oxford, Ohio

Being away at college isn't an excuse to not be festive this fall!

5 Ways To Have Fun This Fall Around Oxford, Ohio
Natalie Citro

Sometimes it can be hard to find things to do in small towns such as Oxford, especially when you are in a college town and you're not quite sure of all of the great things it has to offer because you didn't grow up there. Not to fear, I've compiled a list of some of the amazing things that Oxford has to offer this fall season.

Visit Butterfield Farms 

Located super close to campus, Butterfield Farms is the place to be during the fall. Not only do they carry a large variety of produce and great apple cider, they also have a wonderful selection of pumpkins come fall time. A trip to Butterfield Farms also will prove a fun time if you are able to go on one of their hay rides that allows you to feed their cows. It's an all-around great fall experience!

Visit a corn maze

Corn mazes are one of my favorite fall activities, and there are quite a few options close to Oxford that offer the seasonal activity. So get a group of friends together and head to one of the nearby farms. Bonus tip: Find a place that lets you do the maze at night with flashlights. It makes the maze much harder but also quite a bit more fun.

Visit the Apple Butter Festival 

Held this year on October 5 and 6 at the Hueston Woods State Park Pioneer Farm, the Apple Butter Festival is a fun fall festivity. The Apple Butter Festival is an opportunity to not only try some super yummy apple butter but to also sample plenty of other fall foods. During the festival, you have the opportunity to tour the historic Doty homestead, witness demonstrations of pioneer crafts and pick out your pumpkin for Halloween.

Watch fall-themed movies

This activity doesn't require you to go to any specific location and can even be done in your dorm room. Movie nights are the perfect solution for nights when the weather is less than cooperative. However, if you are looking for something a little different, one of the drive-in theaters close to campus has some great scary movie showings coming up for the fall season.

Visit a haunted house 

Even though it is rumored that Miami University is home to a few ghosts itself, sometimes you just need something like a haunted house to get you in the Halloween spirit. No matter where you are located, there will always be haunted houses somewhere nearby when Halloween rolls around. There are quite a few places near Oxford that offer this attraction if you don't mind a little bit of a drive.

With all of the wonderful things to do this fall season, there is no excuse for being bored when Halloween arrives.

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
