The University of La Verne’s week of Halloween festivities included the Campus Activities Board’s Fright Night Tuesday.
For the event, CAB set up a free student run Fright Night in the South Quad with music, games, food, and mazes.
“We really tried to make this event special for the students at the University,” CAB Intramural Chairman Anthony Juarez said.
“We know that Knott’s Scary Farm and Halloween horror nights at Universal Studios is expensive for college students, so we wanted to bring it to them.”
The night featured two haunted trailer trucks that students had the opportunity to walk through as real and dead bodies alike greeted them at the door.
“I didn’t think the trailers would be that scary but once I got in them and liquid that was supposed to be blood squirted on my face, I knew this was the real deal,” Sarah Prosenko, senior business major, said.
In addition to the haunted trailers, students were also given the opportunity to visit the different booths that student organizations had put together.
ASULV, CAB, Psi Chi, Alpha Omicron Pi, Iota Delta, Sigma Kappa, and the Renewal Club all had booths allowing students to interact with games or crafts.
“The ASULV booth was really fun because we got to paint pumpkins and they even encouraged political pumpkins to get into the election mood and they had so many colors and glitter to decorate,” junior child development major Hannah Gill, said.
The night also featured a food truck for students to snack on burritos, tacos, and fries while also having a DJ that played festive music along with up to date music to dance the night away.
“The event was very well rounded I believe because even if people are too afraid to step into the haunted trucks we still could eat a late night snack and dance and just hang out with friends,” junior business major Rachel Cznarocki said.
The event lasted for three hours and provided all student’s ample amount of time to experience the different haunted trucks along with all of the booths.
“This year we really stepped up by hiring an outside company to scare students in the terror trailers which is a big improvement so the CAB members could focus on the students and keeping them all happy with the other aspects of the night,” CAB vice chairman Spencer Contreras said.
