Last week, the Chemnitz staff of Residence Life held the fourth annual Croptoberfest event at Concordia University Wisconsin (CUW).
Croptoberfest is an on-campus event created to celebrate the season of autumn with themed activities such as pumpkin decorating, a hot chocolate station, live music, and flannels.
The event was hosted by “Courtesy of Chemnitz Country” and sponsored by Student Government Association (SGA). Chemnitz and SGA worked together to plan the best Croptoberfest yet.
“Being a first-year RA, I was nervous to perform to the standard it’s held at. Being one of the first big events Residence Life puts on, our whole staff was on edge about providing the perfect fall festival for campus. Thankfully, our budget was extended by SGA, and we were able to acquire a lot more attractions,” Resident Assistant (RA) Kate Milosz said.
The event proved to be a success with over 500 students in attendance throughout the night.
“The overall reactions I got from peers was completely positive. Everyone enjoyed the variety of activities, from pumpkin bowling to jamming to live music. I couldn’t have predicted a better outcome for the event. I’m so proud of all the work put in by the staff, and it truly delivered what it was set out to do,” Miklosz said.
While the Chemnitz staff is pleased with how Croptoberfest turned out, students also responded positively to the event.
“First things first, I love fall and festivals, so this was a good time to me. The food was good, the environment felt nice, and the live music was cool. It might’ve been cold outside, but it didn’t matter because I was having too much fun,” CUW senior Sebastian Leck said.
Croptoberfest 2018 proved to be a success due to its large turnout and positive feedback.
If you were unable to make it to this year’s event, you can look forward to next year’s fifth annual Croptoberfest.
