A pumpkin is a gourd-like squash and is native to North America. They typically have a thick, orange or yellow shell, creased from the stem to the bottom, containing the seeds and pulp. Pumpkins are widely grown for commercial use, and are used both in food and recreation. Pumpkin pie, for instance, is a traditional part of Thanksgiving meals in the United States, and pumpkins are frequently carved as decorations around Halloween. A pumpkin that has a little face carved in it and hollowed out and decorated with candles inside is known as a jack o'lantern; these are often used at Hallowe'en, for example, to decorate windows.

Today is the start of Breast Cancer Awareness Week. This year there will be an estimated 330,000 women in the U.S. that will be diagnosed with breast cancer. ASB will be distributing donation boxes to participating staff members around campus so everyone can donate towards breast cancer research. The donations will be going to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. The mission of this foundation is to end breast cancer forever. Wednesday, October 16th ASB encourages all staff & students to join together in a “Pink Out” Spirit Day. Dress in pink and show your support for those who have been affected by this disease.
