October 25

Cobwebs on front porches, jack-o-lanterns illuminating in yards, bulk candy sales, haunted house advertisements…Yep, it’s that time of year again when you see, hear, and taste Halloween all around you. Such decorations are seen on campus at this time as well. And, Fontbonne is hosting a Halloween event, the annual Fall Fest, this Thursday October 25. In addition to dressing up and competing in a costume contest, there will be other fun activities, such as apple bobbing and pumpkin carving. All Fontbonne students are welcome 7-10 in the meadow and AMC!

Every year around this time, I take a trip down memory lane and try to remember most of my previous costumes. Here it goes: clock, angel, smiley face (home-made), cowgirl, soccer player, witch, hippie, Marilyn Monroe, Harajuku girl, Cindy Lou Hou, ice princess, playing card from Alice in Wonderland, Maleficent, Pocahontas, Belle, and Lola from Hannah Montana. (Do you sense a Disney theme?) This year I’m going to be Rapunzel! She is my favorite princess.

What are some of your favorite costumes? Whatever you decide to do this week and next to celebrate Halloween, be safe and have fun. Enjoy all the candy!

Halloween season is upon us again, and Fontbonne is giving me plenty of fun things to look forward to. One thing that is particularly holiday-related is the Fall Festival, which is happening on the evening of October 25th. The Fall Festival is an event that unites a bunch of Fontbonne student organizations in providing activities and food for students looking for an enjoyable Halloween-related evening.

Perhaps you’re wondering if the Environmental Club is one of the student organizations involved in the event? Naturally!! We will be doing a thrift shop costume contest. Next week we’ll be making a pilgrimage to GoodWill outlet to pick up a bunch of outrageous clothes and accessories, and they will be available at the Fall Festival for everyone to create costumes from. THE ONLY LIMIT IS YOUR IMAGINATION!! Prize for the best one! Who needs to spend a bunch of money on a silly costume you’ll only wear once? Be thrifty AND environmental – make a costume from second hand clothes and stuff you already have. Your wallet will thank you, the planet will thank you, and you’ll look tons cooler. I guarantee it.
