A Halloweekend Appreciation Post: What To Expect

To channel Chanel Oberlin, “Halloween is my jam.” It’s the my favorite holiday (sorry, Thanksgiving and Christmas) and it’s arguably the most fun time of fall semester because, let’s face it, Northeastern doesn’t really have a Homecoming Weekend. Instead, we have Halloweekend. If you are a freshman, or just want to get yourself excited for the festivities to come, here is what to expect:

  1. Getting ready with all of your friends and rummaging through each other’s closets for the perfect accessory to complete your costume

    TBH, this is more fun than the party.

  2. Your costume’s make up DOES not look like that Pinterest page or Youtube video. But it’s okay because it’s dark out anyway.

    No one will notice at all.

  3. Parties Thursday – Saturday (which is also pretty unknown for Northeastern)

  4. Watching old Disney Halloween classics with your roommates


  5. Realizing that most of these movies were made about 10 years before the target audience for Disney were even born

  6. Or watching something scary and immediately regretting it

  7. Eating lots of candy from your friend’s care package from their Grandma (or your own)

  8. Exploring all that Boston and Massachusetts has to offer:


  9. Like Salem

  10. Or the North End Ghost Tours (highly recommended!)

  11. Or Beacon Hill Trick or Treating (You are not too old yet! Even your parents indulged on Halloween)

  12. Or the Boston Burial Grounds


Enjoy the weekend guys! It’s going to be awesome!
