Fall Fest is an annual event hosted by the Gaines/Oldham Black Culture Center introducing many underrepresented students to various organizations, faculty/staff members, university departments, and Columbia businesses. This event attracts more that 1,000 new and returning students from the Mizzou community. After the tabling portion of the event, fraternities and sororities put on the step show.

This year’s theme, Comicon, gave both staff and attendees great costume options. MizzouRec saw students dressed as Harley Quinn, the Flash, Green Lantern, the Joker, Batwoman and Wonder Woman. GOBCC Coordinator Velma Buckner joined in the fun, arriving as the Queen Mother of Wakanda.
