It is great to see everyone back on campus! It was an exciting summer for us and we have many great programs and events planned for this semester. Here are a couple highlights of what's happening on campus.

Local Products
I hope you have been enjoying some of the local harvest in our dining halls. We are featuring fresh French Fries using potatoes from Sampson Farms in Westport, MA; Macintosh apples from Lanni Orchards in Lunenburg, MA; fresh butternut squash from Noquochoke Farms in Westport; and carrots from Czajkowski Farms in Hadley, MA. We have partnered with FoodEx, a local company that is our direct connection to the farmers. FoodEx will be on campus next week as part of our Fall Food Fest.

Fall Food Fest
From 11:30 to 1:30 on Wednesday, September 26, we'll be outside Stetson East with some of our food vendors for our annual Fall Food Fest. This always popular free event offers you the chance to try samples of our vendors' newest products and interact directly with the companies that provide us with the food we serve to you everyday.

Healthy Cooking Series
We will be starting our first ever Healthy Cooking Series in the Xhibition Kitchen this Thursday, September 27 at noon. Fifty students (first come first served) will be given the opportunity to learn some quick cooking techniques as well as several healthy appetizer recipes to impressive your roommates with. Additional upcoming topics will include entrées, side dishes, and everyone's favorite - desserts. Be sure to get there early to not miss out on this exciting, new (and free!) program.
