A Renaissance Feast & Faire, an evening of jousting, feasting and considerable carousing, was held Wednesday in and around Dauphin Hall. Students enjoyed a meal of roasted turkey, ribs, vegetables, roasted potatoes, fritters and savory desserts in the “Great Hall” of Dining Services’ Capitol Eatery, while the Society for Creative Anachronism provided period entertainment in the adjoining courtyard.
