From decorated dorms to elaborate costumes, students share their ‘Community Trick or Treat’ and Halloween experiences:
Rebecca Strohm ’13, Penfield, N.Y.:
My hall was decorated like a graveyard. My floor made gravestones out of black paper and we put our hallmate names on each of them. We hung spider webs everywhere and put red paper over the lights. It was super creepy!
Alden Hiller ’12, Myrtle Beach, S.C.:
I was a RA for Halloween. My costume included closed toe shoes, a radio, a flashlight, and most importantly, my building keys! It was terrifyingly realistic.
As for the dorm “Trick or Treat,” my floor, Sunderland 2nd, decided to do a “horror theme.” The walls in our hall were covered in black plastic bags, as were the lights and the windows. There were some bags hanging from the ceiling along with “spider webs.” We also had strobe lights some rooms which were opened in order to show some horror scenes. My residents were all dressed up in spooky costumes.
All candy was handed out before they went through the floor so they didn’t have to endure our horrific hall if they didn’t feel comfortable doing it. Overall it was a successful night in which some of the local families had a good scare and my residents had a great time. Oh, and we also won the hall decorating competition, 1st place.
Jeffery Yoder ’13, Mahaffey, Pa.:
I was a Jedi knight complete with light saber and Jedi mind powers.
Darcy Stock ’13, Cramer, Pa.:
I was Lady Gaga and a pretty fly one at that.
