Pumpkin Carving: 2023 Edition

October 26, 2023

We recently continued our annual OML tradition of getting together to carve pumpkins! The weather was not on our side, but luckily we found some space inside and made sure to clean up after ourselves. 

Happy Halloween!

In what has become an annual tradition, we had an OML pumpkin carving party on the oval once again. Due to scheduling conflicts we didn’t have quite as many people as we usually do, but those who did join had a great time and created some masterpieces!

OML End of Semester Fun

December 7, 2021

Now that the semester is wrapping up, we decided to celebrate with a lab cleanup, followed by cookies! We also resumed our annual end-of-the-year lab potluck (which we didn’t get a picture of because we were too busy eating).

In addition to yummy food, we made holiday cards for some local seniors. Much fun was had by all. We hope everyone has a safe and happy December and New Year!

Pumpkin Carving!

October 30, 2021

Last year, in deference to COVID and social distancing measures, we opted to celebrate fall with a pumpkin carving event held outdoors. Now that it’s late 2021, we’re all back in person but we loved pumpkin carving so much that we decided to do it again!


Socially Distanced Pumpkin Carving

November 2, 2020

By Fall 2020, we had a few new lab members that we literally had not met in person thanks to COVID-19. To remedy this, we picked a nice fall day and took over the massive tent that NC State Dining had put up outside near our building. We spaced out, masked up, and proceeded to make some beautiful, some funny, and some scary carved pumpkins.

The final products (thought some aren’t quite done):
