Family and friends of MSU students got a taste of life in the Eagle Nation this weekend during the 40th Annual Family Weekend, Sept. 14-16.

Activities included family fun at the Recreation & Wellness Center, a movie night in Button Auditorium on Friday and the Eighth Annual Morehead Arts and Eats Festival on Saturday.

“Family weekend has been amazing we’ve had great weather and an opportunity to spend time with the faculty and the students here. It’s been a great experience for all of us.” Susan French-Epps, mother of an MSU student said.

“Stupid is what gives us our power. It’s an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us. It binds the galaxy together.” (Obi-Wan Kenobi, paraphrased).

A coworker commented, “I feel like I’m working in a cloud of stupid”. And that was all it took. This show is dedicated to foods with liquid nitrogen (which literally produce a cloud of stupid), the lack of benefit of aspirin for healthy people trying to prevent disease, flu vaccinations, and smartphones.
