AS hosts ‘Nightmare on High Street’
By Alex Dupille
Little Red Riding Hood, Pennywise the clown and Batman were all in attendance at Western on Friday, Oct. 27, for “Nightmare on High Street,” put together by the Associated Students.
Vice president of public relations for the Residence Hall Association Brendan O’Neill was eager to volunteer for this special Halloween event.
“I feel like it’s a big opportunity for us to help the other organizations on campus, so we help them and they help us to make sure we’re all communicating and working together,” O’Neill said.
Walking into the Viking Union, there were a ton of activities for students to partake in. In addition to the free pizza and giveaways from Amazon Student Brand Ambassadors, there was pumpkin painting and a frightening haunted house. Many students were dressed in scary and creative costumes.
This event not only attracted Western students, but other community members showed up, as well. Whatcom Community College student Julia Luong came to get a glimpse at Western’s community.
“I’m studying at Whatcom and I’m thinking about transferring here at Western, so I want to make friends and see how you guys organized your events,” Luong said.
Their well put together promotional poster modeled after the hit Netflix series “Stranger Things” was a huge draw for students like freshman Tyler Primas.
“I like haunted houses, and I’m from California, so I didn’t know of any events to go to,” Primas said. “I thought, since the school was hosting its own haunted house event, I decided why not.”
