Halloween Party exceeds expectations
Ashley Heelan, 20, sophomore of Lewellen, expressed her excitement about the Halloween Party, hosted by RLA. She also brought back the Halloween haunted gingerbread house kit.
The Halloween Party attracted 162 people from 6-9 p.m., Thursday at the Hub.
“This was way more than I ever expected,” said McKenna Jones, 20, junior of Louisville, “I was just hoping to reach at least 31 people!”
The party held by Jones provided cupcakes to decorate, popcorn and prizes up to $80 in value. Prizes included $20 Domino’s Pizza gift card, $15 Apple App store and iTunes gift card, $15 Subway gift card and other Halloween cookies and candies. People just needed to show up, sign in on the sheet and wait for the resident advisors to call their names.
According to Jones, music ranging from “Thriller” by Michael Jackson to the theme song from the movie “Halloween”, which was spooky and mysterious, immersed students in the holiday spirit.
The resident advisors provided cupcakes, half chocolate and half white, with frosting and Halloween sprinkles, “Monster Munch” consisted of kettle corn, popcorn, and other kinds of candies. With the various supply, students were able to create their own cupcake versions.
“People love free food so I thought they would love to get to decorate cupcakes and make it Halloween themed,” Jones said.
Out of 144 cupcakes made, only two were left at the end of the party.
