The atmosphere was calm and fun as the students of the University enjoyed festivities at the Monster Bash. This event was hosted by the Dining Hall. Students and staff dressed up to celebrate Halloween. There was plenty of candy and goodies for the students to enjoy.

“The event could have been better, however I am entertained by the costumes and the spirit of the crowd,” said Senior Majalukah Berry.

There were games like bobbing for apples and candy corn bowling. There was always a winner, even if someone did not win. Every student that participated in playing the games received a prize.

“The activities were fun and I won a Frankenstein toy,” said Junior Jennie Guerrero.

Student creativity was put to the test with a jack-o’-lantern competition. Everyone that carved a pumpkin put a twist to the original jack-o’-lantern and made it their own. There were carvings of Fritz, the Batman logo, vampires and more.

The first place winner was Evan and his scary faced pumpkin. Artiqua placed second with her jack-o’-lantern that was eating a little pumpkin. Ingrid placed third with her SLU Lions pumpkin.
