Lafayette’s list of “to do’s” for the perfect Halloweek

Instead of dressing up one night a year and knocking on doors, hopeful that neighbors will have their favorite candy, college students everywhere extend Halloween to a week long occasion. Halloween becomes “Halloweek,” as students plan their costumes and attend countless events to get in the spirit of the holiday. Here are some of the events happening at Lafayette within the next week to help students celebrate.

Friday, October 24 – 7 p.m.
Lafayette Activities Forum is hosting a trip to the Eastern State Penitentiary for a haunted evening. Preregistration is required for the event.

Monday, October 27 – 7 to 10 p.m.
Phi Kappa Psi and Delta Gamma will host a haunted house at the Phi Kappa Psi House. There is a child friendly version from 7 to 8 p.m. and a version for the general public from 8 to 10 p.m. The event is $3 for tickets purchased in Farinon in advance and $5 at the door. All proceeds from this haunted carnival will be donated to The Delta Gamma Foundation, Service for Sight, and The Boys and Girls Club of America.

Thursday, October 30 – 4:30 to 7 p.m.
There will be a Halloween Climb at the rock climbing wall in the gym filled with Halloween themed games, treats and a costume contest.
