Do you like scary movies? Scary video games? Scary novellas? If you answered yes to any of these, then you’re in luck. On Friday, Oct. 24 and Saturday, Oct. 25 from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. Alford-Montgomery Hall (Al-Monty) on 1505 N Alder St. will be transformed into a haunted house paradise. If you answered no to any of those, then just kidding, it’s a house full of corgi puppies wearing blazers.
A spooky good time
The event will feature some serious scares (err, corgis), however, University Housing and New Student Programs have collaborated with different campus clubs and organizations to pull out all the stops for a night full of fun and excitement.
The Biology Club will have a table of snakes (the non poisonous kind, hide the corgis) that students can touch and feel. There will also be a skeleton and organ puzzle that students can try to reassemble correctly.
Students who partake in the haunted house portion will have the option of their picture being taken directly after the scares, so the memory of being traumatized can live forever.
Scaring is caring
In addition to a night full of scares, perhaps the most important part of the event is the chance to help feed those in need. Non-perishable food items will be accepted for donation, which will go to Fish Food Bank. All attendees are encouraged to help out their community and donate.
If you’re not sold on this event, then I’m not sure what else will. Perhaps the Pumpkin Pong or free candy? Live music sponsored by 88.1 The ‘Burg? How about a glow-in-the-dark activities?
Come on out to Al-Monty tonight at 6:30 p.m. and let your freak flag fly. Just don’t forget to bring extra underwear.
