Just like all holidays, Halloween traditions make everyone’s experience special and unique.  There are many ways of making Halloween special.

Cabrini supports Halloween with traditions, by holding some of their own. Freak Week has a themed event every night. These student-run events may take months to plan. The key organization responsible for many of these events is the campus activities and planning board. This organization runs the mystery dinner in the mansion and the zombie run. The campus radio station WYBF is celebrating Halloween by setting up an event called the Spooky Scavenger Hunt. Teams can participate in it to win tickets to the Bates Motel.

Beyond Cabrini College, there are many haunted attractions in the area that students choose to go to enjoy a fright.

Pennhurst, Eastern State and Field of Screams are just some of the attractions near the campus that students can go to to enhance their experience on Halloween to make it fun and enjoyable. Students around the campus have shared their traditions with Loquitur.

“My family and I always carved pumpkins during Halloween time. Ever since I’ve got to college I have been going to Pennhurst and going to CAP board activities to celebrate and get into the Halloween mood.” Bryana Manning, sophomore education major, said.

Halloween traditions are different depending on the person and what goes on around them. “My town always has a Fall Festival that is filled with pumpkins and mum flowers and it gets me excited for fall which brings on Halloween,” Malley DeSanto, sophomore education major, said.

Going out is not the only way to carry on some spooky Halloween traditions. Brian Quirk, sophomore undeclared major, states “After scaring some trick or treaters, me and my friends always watch some scary movies such as ‘Night of the Living Dead.'”

Whether it is going out for some candy, attending a fall festival or maybe just staying in to watch Halloween movies, traditions of Halloween range from person to person. Each person has a different way of making their Halloween holiday special.
