14 Things To 'Fall' In Love With During This Fantastic Fall Season

It's the most wonderful time of the year.

Whip out your Halloween decorations, your scented candles, and grab a PSL from Starbuck because fall is officially here! Fall seems to be everyone favorite seasons and I can't deny that I agree. Fall brings some many wonderful things like colder weather, football season and spooky vibes that people love. We see fall fashion at its peak and we get our beloved Starbucks drinks back.

As college students, we get caught up in all the hustle and bustle of school and make excuses for not fully enjoying all of the fall festivities that are offered. Yes, we do enjoy dressing up and going to parties Halloween weekend and enjoy the occasional (or frequent) PSL, but sometimes we don't have the time for other fun fall festivities.

Wondering what to add to your fall activities this season? Here are 14 things to enjoy during this fall season!

1. Pumpkin Carving


Pumpkin picking and carving can be a great way to spend time with your roommates and friends on a nice cool Saturday afternoon!

2. Roast S'mores


This may be a unpopular opinion, but roasting s'mores is one of the best things to do when the weather gets cold in the fall.

3. Halloween Movie Night 

We can thank ABC Family aka Freeform for creating 31 Nights of Halloween and giving us all the spooky feels for movie nights. Also, Halloween movies are great to add to your movie list

4. Spooky-Themed Dinner Party 


Grab a bunch of friends and throw yourself a spooky themed dinner party with costumes, games, food and drinks!

5. Throw a Fall Photoshoot


Do you have a photographer as a friend? Grab them and collaborate on a fall themed photoshoot that will make you and your friends have all the fall feels

6. Go Hiking


Weather in the fall is probably one of the main reason it's everyone's favorite season. Cooler weather causes people to want to be outside more often, so grab a friend or your boyfriend and go on a hike at your local park or a walk around campus.

7. Fall Beverages 


Pumpkin Sice Latte. Need I say more? According to most, this is the best fall beverage a college student could ask for (although, I'm a hot chocolate girl myself).

8. Cozy Sweaters and Socks 


Nothing says "fall" than a nice cozy sweater and your favorite pair of fall socks.

9. Bonfires


Bonfires are probably my favorite part of fall. Probably because they are related to s'mores, but they're great for sitting around with your friends having a great time.

10. Thanksgiving Break


Every college student loves hearing the word "break." It means we don't have to deal with school for more than a 2-day weekend. Thanksgiving break has one of my favorite breaks because, although it may be short, Thanksgiving dinner is always the best meal to go home to

11. Haunted Houses 


Haunted Houses are the just amount of spooky everyone needs during fall. They make you scream and laugh all in one trip!

12. Baking Fall Festive Treats


Just another reason to grab your friends and hand out your decorated cooking or, if you're really fancy, an apple pie!

13. Fall Scented Candles 


Scented candles are a MUST always, but the best smells come from the fall scented candles section at Bath and Body Works!

14. Apple Picking 


I can't say I've ever been apple picking but this is a great fall date idea or a Saturday afternoon of fun with your friends!

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!


It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
