It’s that time of year again when campus looks exceptionally beautiful due to the fall foliage. When the leaves change, it’s a signal that Halloween is near. Campus Activities Board helps students celebrate this holiday with Halloweek, where they host festive events the week leading up to Halloween.

One of my favorite events is the annual pumpkin patch, where CAB distributes free pumpkins to students. This past weekend, my roommates and I carved one of the pumpkins we picked up. And when I say “we,” I mean that I did all of the carving, but my roommates did help scoop out the seeds, which we roasted and had as a late night snack.
I decided to carve my favorite Disney character, Stitch. After 3 hours of work I think he turned out well!

Other events around campus this week include showings of the 80s classic Ghostbusters, a spooky open mic night at Rodrigue's, the student run coffee house on campus, and a raffle for free tickets to see Wicked on Broadway.
Fordham students love getting into the spirit of Halloween, and you will find many of them dressed up in costume tonight in celebration, sharing ghost stories and scary legends. If you’re curious about just how spooky Fordham is alleged to be, check out this link to our library’s page on the topic.
