The theme of this past month was free events. There was an ice skating event to kick off homecoming on Memorial Mall. Even if it was warm, it was fun to celebrate the beginning of November with a little winter fun. They also had chili and hot chocolate for us to enjoy, and a few little crafts to pass the time.
Another event that my roommate and I attended was the Health and Wellness Fair. This event was also a lot of fun. We learned about the programs that Purdue and other local organizations have to offer, as well as about general health issues and what we can do to prevent them. The highlight of this event was the free chair massages that were offered. We also got several other free items including stress balls and lip balm. While we walked around, we were treated to free frozen yogurt. It doesn’t get much better than that. In addition to the chair messages and other freebies, they also allowed you to pick up a prize if you stopped at every single booth. We walked away with a new t-shirt and a water bottle. It was worth taking an hour to stop by.
Definitely check out the free events on campus if you are able. It’s nice to get some free food and other goodies simply for showing up.
