As October drew to a close, students participated in a variety of Halloween-themed activities.

The celebration began on Friday, Oct. 27 with a screening of the newly-released second season of the hit Netflix drama Stranger Things. For those not yet caught up on the first season, the movie Halloween Town was also shown.

On Saturday, students presented and attended spooky carnival-type attractions in each dormitory. The activities included ghost stories, apple bobbing, donuts on a string, cookie decorating and a haunted house. The evening concluded with a spooky Halloween Dance featuring a costume contest and a DJ.

The festivities continued on Sunday, when students donned their costumes for trick-or-treating at their teachers’ homes on Faculty Lane.

There were more events for students on Halloween itself. Various staff departments in the Maddy Building also dressed up for the occasion and decorated their hallways to match their theme. Students were invited to tour the hallways, see the staff members’ costumes, collect sweet treats and vote for their favorite department.
