Halloween is the time of year where children rush door-to-door, trick-or-treating for candy.
In college, students don’t get that chance, as they are too old.
So, how do they celebrate the spooky evening of fright and terror? They get dressed up and party of course.
Conestoga Students Inc. (CSI) helped out by organizing a Halloween bash on Oct. 30.
“We do pub events throughout the entire school year. This one was just themed around Halloween because of the time of year,” said Jeff Scherer, president of CSI.
Students from many different programs dressed up and danced the night away in the Sanctuary.
The event gave students a chance to meet new people and enjoy Halloween.
“Everyone gets to meet people,” said Maddie Poser, a first-year business administration-management student. “It’s more of a way of integrating people together.”
The students enjoyed each other’s company along with loud music, drinks, creative costumes and dancing.
DJ Denim, also known as Cameron Vannatter from Denim Entertainment, provided the music.
The Halloween party also had a costume contest where students had the opportunity to win prizes.
First-place winners were three students dressed as the famous band members from Kiss.
They were Justin Kelly, a second-year architecture construction engineering technology student, Justin Van Leeuwen, a second-year woodworking technology student, and Mac Robinson, a first-year civil engineering technology student, who explained that their Kiss makeup took them two hours to complete.
Second place went to Joseph Rideout, a first-year protection/security and investigation student, who was wearing a Ghost Rider costume, and third place went to two girls dressed as Thing One and Thing Two.
The prizes were all prepaid MasterCards, with $100 going to the winner, $75 for second place and $50 for third.
