Transcript H•A•L•L•O•W•E•E•N SPOOKY CAROLYN DEPEW Organizations and students across campus celebrated Halloween for days before and after Oct. 31 with parties, concerts and haunted houses. On-campus, the University of Houston Residence Halls Association sponsored a Scary Movie Night in the Oberholtzer Hall Ballroom Oct. 29. The event lasted from 7 p.m. until midnight, and featured Stephen King's The Shining and the original Friday the 13 th, in addition to Halloween treats. Ronetta Williams, Quad Hall Council president, considered the event a success. "We got to know some of the residents and were able to share information about the Quad Hall Council and RHA as well as have a good time." On Oct. 30, the Wellness Center sponsored a "Feed the Vampires" Halloween blood drive. Chris Kerr, program manager for the Wellness Center, characterized the event as extremely successful and the turnout was "beyond our hopes." The blood drive collected a whopping 59 pints of blood, a massive increase from last spring's blood drive amount of 17 pints. "We had people waiting in line before it started," said teaching fellow and graduate student Bryna Kammerman. "Although a few teachers did offer extra credit for donating blood, most of the students came of their own volition." Sigma Phi Epsilon and Alpha Chi Omega hosted the third annual Frighternity Mansion on Oct. 30 and 31. Proceeds benefited two charities, the Houston Area Women's Shelter and the American Heart Association. Several other organizations across campus used Halloween as a chance to relieve some stress. The Moores School of Music, in conjunction with the Houston Chapter of the American Guild of Organists, held two Halloween Monster Concerts Halloween night. Both performers and audience members were invited to wear costumes. A joint Halloween karoke Halloween party was held by several Asian-American associations. MEChA and the Mexican-American Engineering Society also both held a joint Halloween Bash for their members at the Latino Learning Center. The Catholic Newman Center held a costume party, with attendees instructed to "come as you are or wear a costume, which ever is scarier." On Nov. 1, the Honors College hosted its annual Post-Halloween Party. Many students enjoyed their own Halloween parties separate from any official organizations. Freshman finance major Abby DiPaolo and a group of her friends ran wild through a carnival Halloween night. "One of my male friends held on for dear life and screamed like a little girl. That is, until he hit his head. Laughing at him was the best part of the night."
