IMAGES: Benedictine Celebrates October

There is more to October than Halloween. Especially at Benedictine College in Atchison, Kansas.

There was the St. Benedict Abbey Bavarian Blast (above) …

… along with Oktoberfest on campus.

Camels visited campus this October.

Local kids explored the new 100,000-square-foot STEM building to learn from Spooky Science exhibits.

Students raced beds through the streets of Atchison …

… where the Raven Regiment Marching Band would later lead a parade.

A hayride joined the parade …

… and what would October be without pumpkins?
