It is that time of year again! Ghouls, witches, and vampires return to our campus for another year of Halloween festivities. Halloween is the perfect time to go out in the city, watch scary movies, eat large sums of candy, and dress up in the wackiest or scariest costume. No plans for Halloween because you have an exam? Not this year! Halloween is on a Friday! Take full advantage of it. Not sure how? In need of ideas? Maybe 1986 or 1998 Loyola students can inspire you. In 1986, Loyola students spent Halloween at parties, decorating the residences halls, trick or treating, or handing out candy to the underprivileged from the resident halls. In 1998, students trick or treated, ventured to the French Quarter to show off their costumes, went to haunted houses, participated in a pumpkin carving contest, drove around playing tricks on friends, attended scary movie screenings, or attended a seminar on paranormal research. Hope one of these ideas spark your interest and have spooktacular Halloween!
