SNHU On Campus paired with the SNHU social media team is kicking off their 4th annual Fall F.A.R.E (Food, Arts, Recreation, & Entertainment) on September 19 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the small gym. This event is designed to exhibit the different resources that are available to students in their local community. It is especially targeted at incoming first years and transfer students.

The Fall F.A.R.E. brings local businesses, such as restaurants, entertainment and recreational centers which provide free samples, offers and even both part-time and full-time job opportunities to the students of SNHU. Some of the businesses in attendance this year include Ben & Jerry’s, Pizza 911, Title Boxing Club, Mr. Mac’s, Canobie Lake Park and the Manchester Monarchs.

Graduate Assistant Chelsea Robinson who is in charge of coordinating this year’s Fall F.A.R.E. said, “My hopes with this [event] are to get as many people as interested as I am in the city of Manchester.” She also voiced that this is a great opportunity for students to “get involved with the community in the downtown area.”

With the final push of recruitment for this event, Robinson expressed her excitement to get as many local businesses and vendors to participate as possible. Some businesses that they hope to see include Guitar Center, Music and Arts (Manchester), Muse Paintbar, and Studio 55 to represent the diverse art found in the community.

Robinson goes into detail about her experience as a SNHU student and how she had not visited the downtown area until her sophomore year of college. She emphasizes the importance of student involvement and how “there are so many incredible little businesses. It is truly becoming a really cool area.”

With the event highlighting the businesses located around Manchester, Robinson is excited to see that “there are so many businesses bringing in the younger generation” and hopes to see the student body represented at this event as well as within the community.

Don’t miss your chance to experience what Manchester has to offer and learn all about the downtown area at this year’s Fall F.A.R.E.
