Halloween at Norris: The Spook is Just Getting Started

The leaves are getting redder, the wind is getting chillier, and Halloween is just around the corner. As Wildcats everywhere get ready for the spookiest time of the year, the witches and warlocks at Norris University Center have conjured up a cauldron of Fall programming that is sure to give students a Halloween to remember.

On October 24 and 25 between 12:00 PM and 2:00 PM, put on your most cadaverous costume and stop by the fearsome Photo Fright Booth on the Norris Ground Floor! Dreadfully delicious food will be provided, including ominous orange cupcakes and chillingly cheesy nachos.


Then, on October 26 between 4:00 PM and 7:00 PM, sharpen your favorite knives for the annual Great Pumpkin Carving Contest! Try your hand at carving a horrifying pumpkin, and your design could be featured on Norris’s Facebook or Instagram. If your pumpkin gets enough likes, you could win 50 dollars of creepy Cat Cash!

Finally, on October 31, snatch yourself some terrifying treats at the Norris Candy Grab. From 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM, every department in Norris will be offering free candy. So, swing by ARTica, the Center Desk, or the supernatural SOFO to satisfy that sweet tooth!


With Norris’s Halloween programming, Northwestern students won’t need to go far to find the fright that every October needs. And with midterms and job recruitment lurking around the corner, the Halloween horror is just getting started.
