Southern New Hampshire University’s (SNHU) Hallow­eenFest took place on Oct. 29 at 4 p.m. Hosted by RadioSNHU and cosponsored by 11 other clubs, this event had something for everyone. Originally set to take place on the Green Space, the looming rain forced a location move for the event. Luckily, the Pub had no events taking place at the same time.

“It was a little bit difficult to switch locations because my phone was telling me it wasn’t supposed to rain all day. I’m friends with most of the manag­ers of the other clubs, so I texted them that morning. I think we got everyone in here comfort­ably,” said Sarah Creeden, Presi­dent of RadioSNHU. With 12 total clubs involved, RadioSNHU was able to promote their own club as well as draw in students that may have only been inter­ested in the other cosponsoring organizations.

“We hope to get different kinds of people involved to co­sponsor with us and have a va­riety of shows with our station,” said Creeden. This event in par­ticular was focused on Hallow­een. “We were hoping we could get a lot of people out to celebrate Halloween. I don’t think school has enough Halloween events for students to go to and this gives them more options,” said Creeden. All of the clubs involved provided different activities. The Animation and Art Forms Club had face painting, Student Government Association did mummy wraps and Kappa Chi brought in a photo booth.

Additionally, The Penmen Press held a costume contest and the Gaming Club had Super Smash Bros. to play. Tie dyeing and make your own hot cocoa were also available at the event. With so many options to choose from, this event was a hit with ev­eryone who attended. From the spooky, to the simply fun, Hal­loweenFest was a great addition to the Halloween Weekend.
