In the busy lives of students, it may be difficult to find time to just relax and have a little fun.

Now that school is back in full swing, those who have to split time between work, classes, homework and even parenting are finding that there is now even less time to plan for fun activities.

Fear not, for the Student Activities Club of Folsom Lake College, El Dorado Center has planned some events.

First, I would like to say that the Bridge Day was a wonderful success with new students meeting with student mentors in the El Dorado Center Community Room and learning about all the services the campus has to offer.

Students who attended were delighted to get to know the campus with the help of experienced students, as well as being able to meet some of the staff and professors.

For new students on campus or potential students who missed Bridge Day, don’t worry. You are always welcome to visit the Student Activities Club in the EDC Community Room (C-102) on Thursdays from noon to 1 p.m. and meet a club member who will be glad to familiarize you with the campus.

Two upcoming events are the blood drive and the Fall Festival.

Get your veins ready and that blood flowing, because on Tuesday, Oct. 8, Blood Source will be coming to campus for a blood drive. Its van will be located at the front of the campus, and yes, walk-ins, both students and community members, are welcome.

Bring a photo ID if you plan to donate and be sure to have eaten and be well-hydrated. A free T-shirt awaits each donor and a new system of rewards from Blood Source. Called MyBloodSource, this new program is an online way to keep track of your donations and accumulate points which can later be spent on rewards such as T-shirts, movie tickets and even an Amazon Kindle.

If you have any questions go to the Blood Source Website bloodsource.org or call 1-800-995-4420.

The other big event at the El Dorado Center is the Fall Festival. Taking place on Thursday, Oct. 9, the Fall Festival will be a gathering for the whole community with fun and games for everyone as well as local vendors with their wares.

Included in the festivities will be a pie-eating contest, bobbing for apples, pumpkin decorating and more.

All festivals need music and 101.9 The Wolf will be on campus to provide musical entertainment during the activities.

For a vendor booth at the festival contact Deanne Repetto at repettd@flc.losrios.edu.

The community is welcome at all events.
