Halloween: Georgia Southern Style!

It is finally almost Halloween! Halloween is the time of year where you can dress up as anything you have ever wanted to be and not be looked at weirdly, but with us being so far from Atlanta we students here at Georgia Southern do not have the luxury of going to Netherworlds or 13 Stories like other people our age. There is no fear to be had however. Georgia Southern has our own little twist on the typical haunted house and we call it the Haunted Forest. The Haunted Forest is an event put on every year and is located in the curve by the soccer field. 

 

But if haunted activities are not for you and your group of friends Georgia Southern has plenty of options to suit everyones needs. Beginning at 10 a.m. all the way until 2:30 p.m. Georgia Southern will host its annual costume contest. Faculty, staff and student you are all invited to compete in the annual University Store Costume Contest! Awards will be given based on: Best Individual Student, Best Individual Faculty and Staff Member, Best Student Group and Best Faculty and Staff Group. So make sure you plan the best costume in this world.

 
Don't have a winning costume ready?? Well no fear Georgia Southern will also be hosting a Halloween Photo Scavenger Hunt in the Dining Commons. Groups of five to six will use a list of items and places provided by Eagle Dining Services to complete the photo scavenger hunt. Participants will take photos of and with the items they find throughout the event. Costumes are required for a group to participate, so just find a old costume or you can visit one of our blog to find simple D.I.Y costumes. The scavenger hunt will both begin and end at Dining Commons on campus. A prize will be distributed to the winning group.

Are you unfortunately on baby sitting duty this year? Georgia Southern even has something put together for you and your younger siblings! The Georgia Southern Museum is calling all elementary school-age children this Halloween for our Spooky, Slimy, Science Laboratory! Kids can come test their Mad Scientist Skills with lots of ghoulish hands-on activities and treats that our incredible Georgia Southern student staff have designed for the children. Free for children in costume under 10 years old, $2 per person for all others excluding museum members.

 

Do you find yourself just wanting to relax this year? Well come out and enjoy the he beautiful sounds of The Magnolia String Quartet directed by Dr. Larisa Elsha, and also The Mello-Cello-Fellowship and the GSU String Camerata directed by Dr. Steven Elisha with Dr. Larisa Elisha and Dr. Michael Braz. The program will feature works by Vivaldi, Greig, Brahms, Saint-Saens and more. Admission is free and costumes are encouraged.
