Getting out of the house 

With students completing much of their classroom assignments from home, and some students working from home as well, visiting The Pot-Luck Greenhouse is a perfect way to escape the monotony of your work and enjoy some of the fresh local produce while engaging in the activities available at Fall Fest.  

“I think it’s very important for students to pursue fall activities especially now during the coronavirus when so many people are just stuck at home,” said Wright State University (WSU) Junior Jaden Stacy. “You get to meet new people, embrace your creativity with carving pumpkins and just have a good time.”  

WSU alumni Christian Henderson enjoys the corn maze at Fall Fest, and recounts autumn months spent at the university.  

“Fall was my favorite time of year during my collegiate career at Wright State. The leaves changing across campus, being able to wear hoodies, visiting pumpkin patches and going through corn mazes were always my favorite things to do,” Henderson said.  

“I feel for all of the students at WSU trying to have fun during these unprecedented times. You have to go out and still try to make the best of the situation. Things like Fall Fest are the perfect way to enjoy the fall months while still remaining socially distant.”  

The Pot-Luck Greenhouse was contacted and was unable to comment in time for publication.
