Halloween events bring campus to lifeNovember 3, 2008
Students gathered at dusk on Friday, October 31 for a candlelit vigil to raise awareness about domestic violence. The event was organized by the Social Justice Coalition in collaboration with Safe Haven Ministries.
Meanwhile hundreds of costumed children from the community meandered through the apartment buildings in Knollcrest East on Halloween for the annual Light in the Night celebration. Buildings collaborated on decorative themes like The Jungle Book, The Wizard of Oz, outer space and more.
A Chewbacca suit got this student many votes for best dressed at Student Senate's annual Halloween Masquerade Dance. Other costumes seen at the dance included two students dressed as milk and cookies, a gumball machine, Michael Phelps, Harry Potter and a bevy of witches, ghouls, princesses and ninjas.
Finally students scared themselves silly at the English department's first Edgar Allen Poe party Friday night. The party included readings of Poe's poems and stories, like "The Tell-Tale Heart Heart" being recited above by senior Matt Decker.
