Everybody loves to celebrate Halloween one way or another, and Saint Vincent’s clubs offer plenty of ways to get into the spirit! From volunteer work to dance parties, you’re sure to have the fright of your life this year!
Activities Programming Board (APB) has always provided students with plenty of fun during Halloween, and this year is no different. Events like Haunted Hallways, Horror Movie Night, and Pumpkin Paint Night may have passed, but Halloween Bingo is happening on Oct. 27 at 9:30 p.m. in the Carey Lounge. There’s also a trip to Kennywood Amusement Park’s Phantom Fright Nights on Oct. 28, and tickets are being sold at the Campus Life Window for $20 each. The last events APB is hosting will take place on Oct. 31. There will be an all-day costume contest on ABP’s Instagram page (@svc_apb), and to end the night, ghost stories around a fire will be told in front of St. Benedict Hall.
Perhaps you prefer giving treats instead of tricks. If that’s the case, then help the Respect Life Club for their annual Halloween for the Hungry event. Each year, the club goes into Latrobe during their trick or treat time and collects canned goods to donate to the food bank at Our Lady of Grace Church, and you can certainly dress up if you wish! Halloween for the Hungry will take place on Oct. 29 from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
As mentioned in a previous issue of The Review, Bearcat Buddies — a club that creates events for the Bearcat B.E.S.T. students — will be holding a dance on Oct. 29 from 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. in Saint Scholastica Hall. There will be a costume contest, Halloween games, and more! The club requests that those interested in attending sign up with the following link: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/8050B4BA9AFE3-halloween.
Perhaps you want some Halloween decorations for your dorm. Then be sure to head to Tri-Beta’s Halloween Bash on Oct. 31 in the Dupre Science Pavilion. There, you can create a skeleton out of pipe cleaners or carve a pumpkin using a scalpel! If you have plenty of decorations, then you can still participate in their games (with prizes!) or stop in to nibble on some snacks.
Uniting All Peoples (UAP) is excited to host an All Hallows Eve Night on Oct. 31 at 7:45 p.m. in the Carey Lounge. There, you can try your hand at some crafts, sip on a spooky mocktail or two, and plenty of other activities. Wondering what these are? Guess you’ll have to hop on a broomstick and fly down to find out!
Don’t be a lazy bones this Halloween and go roam the campus for a howling good time!
