Ghosts and goblins will be prancing around campus on Friday, Oct. 31. Just because those at Cabrini are not at home with their childhood friends, it does not mean that they will not be dressing up and begging door-to-door for those sweet treats.
Cabrini students will be sporting a number of different costumes around campus. Several of the Resident Assistant’s will be returning to the ’80s in their decade-appropriate clothes. Cats, zombies, pirates, and angels will also be popular disguises for the fun-filled night.
Students plan to go trick-or-treating in order to de-stress and just have a good time. Sophomore education major Maureen Cooper said, “It’s a great night to let go of all your problems and just have fun, like when you were a little kid.”
For many freshmen students, this will be their first year not dressing up and going trick-or- treating. Freshman Chuck Jaxel said, “I would dress up if I were going home, this is my first year not going trick-or-treating. I kept doing it back home because all of my friends went.” Freshmen Lauren McStravick will be doing just the opposite of Jaxel. “I can’t wait to dress up because I am going to be a fallen angel. It’s the one time of year I can be someone else,” McStravick said.
Senior history and political science major Karl Heiss is looking forward to dressing as a biker on Halloween night. “I’m following in my dad’s footsteps. He was a biker when he was my age.”
According to employees at the Halloween Shoppe on Lancaster Avenue, local college students have been buying a lot of comical costumes instead of the traditional gory disguises this Halloween season. Naughty nurses, doctors and sexy maids have been flying off the shelves. Little babies will be sporting costumes such as the Cat in the Hat, Spider Man and the ever-popular pumpkin. Austin Powers, International Man of Mystery, Harry Potter and Freddy will be lurking down the residence halls in just a few days.
So keep your eyes open and your candy bowls ready for costumes of all shapes and sizes to be knocking on your door Friday night.
