Next Friday, October 28th, three days before Halloween, Gusties are in for a spooky evening of fun. The Campus Activities Board is putting together a Monster Bash, which will take place in Alumni Hall from 9pm-12am. This event will allow students to showcase their spooky side and have a good time celebrating the halloween season with friends and fellow Gusties.
Junior Noelle Schmitt, the Campus Activities Board Marketing Co-Executive, gives insight into the plans and hopes for this event. “The Monster Bash event is going to be a chance for Gustavus students to dress up in Halloween costumes (but not necessary) and get together with others to enjoy spooky songs, fun games, and appetizers!” Schmitt said. The event will be embellished by on-theme spooky decorations, goodie bags, purple lights. There will be areas with different games, and even a photo booth. Gusties are encouraged to get on their spooky spirit for the event. “Halloween costumes are not required for students, but the CAB executives at the event will be wearing costumes!” Schmitt said.
The goals of this event go beyond having halloween fun, though. The Campus Activities Board is looking for new members, and this event will serve as a way for current board members to recruit possible new members. Applications are now open for CAB and they are hoping to expand the group. However, all students are welcome to the event, regardless of their interest in CAB. Schmitt says they want this event to be “a fun experience for everyone involved and to be accessible to as many students as possible.”
“Overall, I am so excited for this event and hope that the students who come have a great time.” Schmitt said.
