As one of the biggest holidays of the year draws near, students of all ages are ever more constantly teased and taunted by the scents of caramel apples, cotton candy, king-sized candy bars and stale candy corn, knowing that all they can do is wait for the big day.
At Irvine Valley College, things aren’t that different, and the Associated Student Government and Inter-Club Council know it. There will be a Halloween celebration for all those who would wish to attend on Oct. 31 from noon to 1:30, in the IVC quad outside the Student Services Center.
This gathering won’t just be some paltry collection of taped-up, painted cardboard boxes labeled “haunted house,” but instead will be an event that will actually make you want to go.
Aside from a scheduled pumpkin pie eating contest and a cookie making booth, there are plans for a costume catwalk where students can show off their personal creativity and handiwork to the cheers, jeers, and catcalls of their peers. There are also plans for a Halloween-themed “Fear Factor” game, as well as a “Treasure Hunt” and guesses are as good as any as to what they might entail.
Aside from all the merriment, clubs at IVC are planning to set up tables where interested students can talk to club members and sign up.
“A lot of people missed club rush,” Gangone said. “It was at a bad time in their schedule or they didn’t know about it.”
