2018 Fall Festival

Galveston College will host its 2018 Fall Festival on Wednesday, Oct. 24, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. on lawn of the main campus at 4015 Avenue Q, Galveston, Texas.

Now in its 11th year, the festival is hosted by the Galveston College Student Government Association and the Office of Student Activities under the direction of Cynthia Parra, coordinator of Student Activities.

“Galveston College began the festival shortly after Hurricane Ike to bring the community together and to give the children of the island some consistency in the aftermath of tragedy,” said Parra. “The event has continued to grow over the years and has become a Galveston College tradition along with Spring Fling during the spring semester.”

Highlights of the festival will include music, games, inflatable bounce houses, activity booths, food and many more attractions that are sponsored by the Office of Student Activities, student clubs and organizations.

A new Galveston College program starting this academic year is the addition of the first-ever FAFSA Fest in the Abe and Annie Seibel Foundation Wing.

FAFSA Fest is designed to help students and their families navigate the sometimes-challenging financial aid process. Three sessions will be available: 9-10:30 a.m., 12-2 p.m. and 5-7 p.m.

Current and prospective students can get help completing the online Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in addition to having other questions answered. Students who complete their FAFSAs that day will be entered into a drawing for prizes.

The FAFSA application period for the 2019-20 academic year opened on Oct. 1. Students should bring their families’ 2017 income and tax information. Students under the age of 18 should bring a parent or guardian.

Activities and attractions sponsored by the Office of Student Activities, as well as FAFSA Fest, are free of charge. Student organizations may charge nominal fees for food items and other fundraisers in support of club activities such as attendance at professional conferences.

The festival is open to the public, and children are welcome.

In the event of rain, the event will be located in the Hermes Fitness Center on campus.
