6 of the Best Fall Activities in Victoria


The quad.

1. Finnerty’s Apple Cider

One of my favorite ways to get in the seasonal spirit: seasonal treats. Apple Cider from Finnerty’s by the bus loop is the way to go for a quick and warm way to enjoy the day.

Need to fulfill your inner pumpkin spice craving? Pumpkin scones in the Caf, yum!

Bonus: White Chocolate Hot Chocolate, need I say more.

2. Take Pics in the Quad…like, a million of them.

img_4070The most beautiful place in Fall is the UVic quad. Looking for a new profile pic or cover photo? The row of trees or the front of the library will be filled with color and falling leaves.

3. Thanksgiving Reswide

If you live in residence and are spending Thanksgiving on campus, come check out our event on Thanksgiving weekend. We will have fun activities and pie, lots and lots of pie!

A pumpkin patch, corn maze, and hay rides, oh my! This one stop has all your Fall Instagramming and pumpkin picking needs.

5. Victoria Ghost Walks

If you are feeling spooky, check out the Ghost Walks held downtown every night of October. Discover Victoria’s mysterious history and enjoy a unique Halloween-time experience.


The library.

6. Puppy Playtime

Twice a year the Student Ambassadors hold a week long DeStress Fest to help students chill during exams. My favorite part is Puppy Playtime. Nothing destresses me more than a room full of sweet pups. So keep your eyes peeled at UVic events for the opportunity to snag a “skip the line” ticket to get to the puppies even faster!

Check these out and you will be sure to “fall” even more in love with UVic 😉
