Fall Fest features performances by the National Pan Hellenic Council (NPHC) Greek Organizations, tables about various organizations and departments, and local Columbia businesses such as barbershops, hair salons, and churches.

This is an excellent opportunity to show the campus community what your organization, department or business is about, advertise your services, and recruit new members/customers.
