Hosted by Lambda Pi Upsilon sorority, this year’s Pumpkin Fest fell on National Pumpkin Day. Although it was a total coincidence, they could not have picked a better day.

Lambda Pi Upsilon has been on campus for almost a year now hosting various events. Some include hosting social, educational and philanthropy events that better serve the campus and global community. The sorority is Latina based, but not Latina exclusive.

“We thrive on diversity and strive to be true definitions of poderosas (powerful women) we have become empowered through joining this organization and aim to help empower other like-minded women,” says the sorority’s Orientation Chair and Co-Events Coordinator, Hermana Ashley Nunez.

The sorority focuses on family, learning, education and motivation advancement and exposure.

The pumpkin fest had several events and various pumpkin themed foods. Events included a pumpkin ring toss, a cut-out pumpkin board for pictures, and pumpkin bowling with toilet paper ghosts. The foods which were pumpkin themed included pumpkin covered cookies, pumpkin whoopie pies and assorted candies.

The event was very successful, with many students enjoying all the Pumpkin Fest had to offer.

“The games were really fun and I like the fact that Greek life is growing on campus,” says Herlander Sousa.  

Cindy Zhunio agreed saying, “I liked how they had pumpkin bowling, it was very different and it so much fun.”

The sorority hosted this event to help get their sorority’s name out there on campus. This event was just one of many to help the campus community have fun with them.

Sorority president Daniella Molina says, “We love our campus and our organization and we hope to continue to strive to make a difference everywhere.”

The sorority would like to congratulate their two newest Hermanas, Rachel Nieves and Johnae McGraw. “We love you and congratulations”, said the Upsilon Colony.

The event’s co-sponsors included the Latin American Students Association (LASA), and the brothers of Alpha Phi Omega (APO).

Do not worry if you missed this event because all of this week (the 31st to the 4th) Lambda Pi Upsilon will be hosting PODER week and the theme is woman empowerment. Be sure to check it out!
