Hall-WU-Ween time is here


It is once again time to celebrate the annual Hallo-WU-een costume contest which will start at 2 p.m. Wednesday Oct. 31 in the Stauffer Commons of the Memorial Union. It is sponsored by the Ichabod shop, Student Activities & Greek Life and the Campus Activities Board. Any student organization or student can participate by pre-registering or registering onsite.

The costume contest categories are most creative, best group or couple, famous figure, worst costume, scariest and spirit of Washburn. Costumes will be judged on originality, quality, participant attitude and detail. Every category will have a first, second and third place winner and there will be an overall grand prize winner.

To pre-register stop by the Student Activities & Greek Life office to pick up a registration form. On-sight registration will begin at 1:30 p.m. Oct. 31 with the costume show starting at 2 p.m.

Another Halloween event to look for is Zombie Zumba which will be from 6:15 p.m. until 7:15 p.m. Oct. 30 at the Student Recreation and Wellness Center.

Zombie Zumba gives students a chance to participate in a Zumba class, which will be given by two Zumba instructors, while being dressed in Zombie attire.

“This is our first time hosting Zombie Zumba,” said Erin Shurtz director for leadership and wellness of CAB. “I’m excited to see everyone dress up and see what kind of attire everyone comes out with, how creative people are going to get and to see the turn out.”

Zombie attire is not required but is recommended. The first 50 people to arrive will receive a free T-shirt.
