A drone camera captures the beauty of autumn on Mount St. James. From breathtaking sunsets to stunning foliage, there is no place more beautiful and exciting than Mount St. James in the fall. Take a moment to experience autumn at Holy Cross.
Holy Cross family and friends kick off Family Weekend with the inaugural “Crusaders Against Cancer 5k” road race on campus. The Crusaders Against Cancer 5K presented by Carr Financial Group supports the 15-40 Connection, a Worcester-based cancer 501(c)(3) charity.
At the completion of the race participants proudly displayed “I Conquered Mount St. James” placards. No other race course like Holy Cross’ exists in New England. The course starts on the track behind the Hart Center at the very top of Mount St. James. Race markers and volunteers then direct runners along a carefully designed course that displays some of the most beautiful aspects on campus. Runners appreciate the gradual downslope through the first half of the course followed by a gradual incline that brings runners back to the track at the Hart Center.
Students celebrate autumn during the annual Fall HarvestFest Dinner in Kimball Dining Hall. Students selected from pork roast with caramelized apples, homemade cranberry sauce, roasted butternut squash, Vermont cheddar mashed potatoes and an apple cider rotisserie chicken. They also indulged their sweet tooth with caramel and chocolate apples, pumpkin spice cupcakes and other fall favorites handcrafted by Holy Cross Dining Services.
