On Friday and Saturday night sounds of blood-curdling screams were heard throughout campus.

This weekend, the annual haunted trail was held outside of Grace Hall. Students received free admission. The general public paid $2 for adults and $1 for children. Other than the trail, thrill seekers were invited to paint pumpkins and were offered cider and ginger snap cookies.

A scene from “Psycho,” a girl in a casket and a tunnel of darkness were a few things seen during the 15-minute walk through the trail.

While walking through the woods all that was heard from the group sent ahead was “Oh god, mother! Blood!” One of the girls who started the trail with us ended up missing in action.

Abby Maul, a first-year student enjoyed the trail especially the chainsaw. “I almost peed my pants!” Maul said.

Chris Vesci, a senior, enjoyed the scene taken from “Psycho.” He also said, “The best part of the trail was the chainsaw. I actually could smell the chainsaw. It smelled like hot metal,” Vesci said.

This was senior Rachel Angeloni’s third year helping run the haunted trail. “I like jumping out at people and scaring the bejeezus out of them,” Angeloni said.

This was also senior Trish Arnold’s third year helping with the trail. The best part for her is seeing everyone enjoying him or herself.

Many people came out to enjoy this event not just residents. A children’s birthday party attended the haunted trail early on Friday night to enjoy the scares. Neighbors of the college and friends and family of students here came to enjoy the haunted trail.
