The Community Building in housing was dressed to scare with the annual halloween dance, courtesy of the Resident Hall Association on Oct. 29.
RHA is a student-run organization working to improve the quality of life for other students on campus. The group regularly participates in and creates events for the enjoyment of students, faculty and even families.
The Halloween Dance is one such event that RHA puts each year.
With Halloween decorations all around, a dj playing music and free food and drinks, the event attracted quite a crowd.
Many of the attendees came dressed to the nines in their Halloween costumes. Witches, pirates and faux bloodied clothing were everywhere.
Students had many favorites of the night. After a year without events like these, students were happy to come back and be with friends for the night.
Students like Jill Mann, a freshman, said her favorite moment of the night were the cookies and company.
Maybe one of the more popular parts of the night was when one specific song played.
“The cupid shuffle was probably my favorite part of the night, ” Zion Hawkins, freshman, said.
Bre Williams, sophomore, agreed with Hawkins. “When I started the cupid shuffle and led the whole dance,” she said.
The night was long and filled with laughter from all the attendees. Some were dancing, playing pool or basketball, while others chose to talk to their friends. People even attempted a guessing game to win a prize.
In the center of the study lounge was a guessing game with two mason jars. One jar was filled with candy corn and another filled with corn kernels. Everyone was encouraged to make a guess for both jars. With one winner per jar, two people will win a basket full of goodies, like blankets and hot chocolate.
As of this time the winners have yet to be announced due to the counting process not yet being finished.
The night ended with everyone leaving full of smiles and food, and after a fun event like the dance, it should be counted as a success.
