Fall celebrations at CSE: Cobwebs, candy, and camaraderie
CSE faculty, staff, and students celebrated the fall season with a variety of traditions and activities, both spooky and sweet.
No fall is complete without CSE’s annual door decorating contest. With more than a dozen offices competing, this year’s doors ranged from silly to literary to downright scary. Room 3945 won first prize with a menacing pumpkin-headed monster. The Graduate Programs suite of offices (rooms 3909A, 3909B, and 3917) claimed second place with their spine-chilling decorations, and room 3820 came in third with an artistic depiction of Sauron’s tower from Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings.
Participants gathered for an announcement of the contest winners on Halloween day and celebrated their victory (or mourned their loss) over donuts and cider.
A number of offices around the Beyster Building also hosted trick-or-treating for students, faculty, and staff, and there were plenty of fun costumes, including a banana, a cow, a dinosaur, and more.
The holiday celebrations closed with an open house hosted by the CSE Graduate Programs Office, featuring a decked-out ice cream sundae bar and fun activities such as rock painting.
CSE wishes everyone a very happy season! We look forward to continuing our fall traditions next year.
