A few ideas for some autumn fun

By Patrick Phillips
On September 22, 2012

I like to think I live a pretty notorious and swankified life, so I
thought, "Hey Pat, why don't you share some of your favorite fall things to do so that the studentbody can join the adventure?" Well, I'd be delighted to indulge the Xavier University community with such information. Fall Suggestion #1
Pumpkins, Corn Mazes, Hayrides, Oh My: Visit a Pumpkin Patch With Halloween right around the corner, nothing gets you into the holiday spirit than visiting a pumpkin patch.
Niederman Family Farm is the place to go. There you can find the perfect pumpkin for your dorm room or front porch and walk through a massive corn maze. Niederman Family Farm is now open Friday through Sunday in September and Wednesday through Sunday starting in October. It is located at 4972 LeSourdesville-West Chester Road in Liberty Township, Ohio 45011, and admission is $8. For more information, check out their website at http://www.niedermanfamilyfarm. com/.
Fall Suggestion #2
Fright Night: U.S.S. Nightmare Nothing turns into a hilarious
adventure more than going with group of your friends to a
haunted house. For the best experience, head across
the river to Newport and hop aboard the U.S.S. Nightmare for the best (and most frightening) night of fun. Open since Sept. 14, the U.S.S. Nightmare is voted one of America's
top haunted venues. The attraction is open until Nov. 3, so there is plenty of time to visit. General admission is $16, but if you want to get in quickly, you can pay $20 to skip the line. For more information, check out their website at
Fall Suggestion #3
Horrible Horror Movie Funtime: AMC Fear Fest For all you Halloween movie buffs who get excited every time Michael Myers' theme song enters your eardrums, the American
Movie Channel (AMC) plays the most iconic horror movies all day starting Oct. 13, running until Oct. 31. They show some of the worst, most hilariously awful horror movies ever made, from Jason X to cult classics such as Nightmare on Elm Street. It also features the kick
off of the new season of their hit zombie drama, The Walking Dead. Fear Fest is a great excuse to get cozy with your significant other or to get a chance to finally see The Shining (which hopefully you have. If not, go watch it at Fear Fest... immediately).
Fall Suggestion #4
A Nice Change of Scenery: Take a Walk In my opinion, fall is the most beautiful season. I love walking trails in the woods and seeing the leaves as they are changing color.
Miami White Water, Fernbank Park and Shawnee Lookout are three great locations to have a gander at the beauty of fall. However, you do not have to go off-campus to enjoy the change of scenery. Xavier's campus is beautiful too, so make sure you take full advantage of it. I hope these suggestions help fill your season with fantastic fun
for you and your friends.
