“My favorite thing about fall is the leaves and because all of the colors. They mesh well together. I love the orange and the yellow. My favorite leaves are the rounded ones that point at the top.”

MOLLY DECLUE, junior

“I like the changing of the leaves because I think that it is beautiful. I like pumpkin picking because Halloween is one of my favorite holidays.”

DONYELLE DEMARSE, junior

“OK, well it’s hard to pick my favorite because autumn is my favorite. But I would probably have to say it’s a tie. I’m sorry if that’s illegal but it’s a tie between the color of the leaves and the smell. I just think those two go hand and hand. I don’t know, it just makes me feel nice and warm inside, just the best season in the world.”
