Favorite Thing To Do In Athens: Going downtown

 Perfect Date Idea: I would want to go downtown to one of the restaurants since there’s so many good ones in Athens. Next, I would want to go walking around north campus and take pictures.  Then we could come home and chill.

An Alternative Halloween


Halloween is quickly approaching. As usual, there will be a multitude of drunken frat parties to choose from and the bars downtown will be flooded with costume clad students still recovering from Georgia/Florida. But if you’re not feeling the party scene this year, there are still plenty of opportunities to make your Halloween enjoyable.

If you’re feeling creative:
Organize a giant Halloween Scavenger hunt on North Campus. Divide your group into teams and the first team to find all their clues wins a bag of candy or some other Halloween related prize. If coming up with clues is too much of a stretch, opting for a game of North Campus manhunt is just as fun. Just remember, the later the spookier.

Halloween Costumes for Under $25


      Halloween is one of the best things about October (other than the Georgia Florida game, of course). Your days of trick-or-treating are long gone, but in college Halloween is one of the many excuses for a celebration. Parties, socials and other Halloween events allow you to show off your costume creativity. However, finding a cute costume shouldn’t put a dent in your budget. You would be surprised by how many costumes you can create by using pieces that you or your roommate most likely have in your closets. Just spend your money on extra accessories. The following are some ideas for costume that are guaranteed to make a statement without destroying your bank statement.

Gold digger

With a little work, this costume is simple, yet creative. Use gold spray paint to paint a medium sized shovel. Match the shovel with a sparkly golddress (or a sparkly gold top and leggings) and you have a creative play on words for your costume.

Spray Paint $7 (Michaels), Shovel $10-15 (Walmart)
Total Cost: $22


Oopa Gangnam Style (PSY) If you haven’t seen the video for Gangnam Style, head to YouTube immediately. To recreate this Korean pop star’s style, grab a blazer (preferably black or blue), a white button up, a bowtie & a pair of those black wayfarers that they give away at every booth in Tate Plaza. Don’t forget to dance the Gangnam Style dance at any possible opportunity.

Total Cost: Bowtie- $2-5 (Thrift Store)
