Around campus, there are signs everywhere showing how much Lynn students are preparing for the spookiest night of the year. For those who are still unsure of their plans for Hallow’s Eve, several events are going to be held to help everyone get into the right state of mind for the night.
The first event that is scheduled for Halloween is the Psychic Fair, which will take place between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Oct. 31 in the Student Center Lobby. The event will be hosted by the Student Activities Board (SAB) and the Center for Student Involvement (CSI). Students can attend the event to get some insightful information about themselves.
“The Psychic Fair allows students to get in the Halloween spirit by experiencing palm reading and tarot card reading,” said Jawaun Rogers, Student Involvement Coordinator. “I would encourage students to come and see what their future holds.”
At the Psychic Fair, multiple psychics will give students predictions to give them an idea of what tomorrow may hold for them.
“The psychics read cards and they also read your palms,” said Edson Hernandez, sophomore and president of SAB. “You know, if you’ve never had your fortune been told, you should come out and see [what they’re] about because I’ve heard they’re on point.”
Another event that will be taking place on campus is a screening of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” in the DeHoernle Lecture Hall located in the Green Center. The event begins at 7 p.m. on Halloween and is hosted by the Gay Straight Alliance. This particular screening, unlike the other events, focuses on more than just Halloween.
“Students can expect an event full of fun and interactive film viewing,” said Armand Irizarry, upperclassman 3.0 student and Gay Straight Alliance president. “We want them to come out in their Halloween costumes to possibly win a spooky prize and at the same time [get] to know a little bit about LGBTQ history and transgender remembrance.”
Students can expect to get treats such as candy and prizes based on costumes they wear that resemble a “Rocky Horror” theme.
“We chose this day because it is a great Halloween film that anyone could watch,” said Irizarry. “We want people to come out of it with a smile and a little more informed on transgender remembrance.”
HALLOWEEN FILM NIGHT
At 7 p.m., Sabine Dantus, outreach librarian, will be hosting the Lynn Library’s Halloween Film Night in the Cube.
Dantus stated that the event is both a showcase of one of the library’s newest resources and a chance to watch “A Tale of Two Sisters,” a South Korean horror film.
“Halloween Film Night at the Library is a chance to showcase our newest resource, Kanopy, which is a Netflix-like documentary and film streaming service available for free to students, faculty and staff,” said Dantus. “Students should go because it will be a great opportunity to hang out with other students and socialize and watch another culture’s take on horror.”
With everything going on for the weekend, Lynn students should certainly have a happy Halloween.
