Friedman in Photo: Pumpkins, Cider, and Gourds – Oh My!

by Mimi DelGizzi

On Tuesday, October 21st, Friedman students convened in the Jaharis Cafe for some much-needed relaxation and an opportunity to wax their creative sides. The Friedman Sprout was there to document both the creativity and merriment of the occasion.

A few weeks ago, the Friedman Student Council collaborated with Slow Food Tufts to debut the first Pumpkin Party.

A plethora of ciders (Honeycrisp, too!) helped create the festive atmosphere.

Pumpkin-flavored treats, delicious cheeses and candy corn were served. (Candy corn’s a vegetable, right?)

Decoupage is a fancy French term for cutting out pictures from magazines and brushing globs of glue on them. Hi, kindergarten. We’ve missed you.

Well-attended, the celebration ushered in mid-term season at Friedman and offered a much-appreciated respite from studying.

Perhaps some Friedman students found their callings in the art of pumpkin decorating.
