Public Invited to Celebrate Halloween at Penn State DuBois

10/12/2007 —

DuBois – The Delta Mu Sigma Honor Society invites the public to celebrate Halloween at Penn State DuBois.  A haunted house and a Safe Trick-or-Treat night will provide thrills and chills for the whole family. 

The haunted house is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. Friday, October 26, and Saturday October 27, in the Mary Smeal Building.  Delta Mu Sigma members, with help from Student Government Representatives and the THON committee will work to bring out the spooky side of the campus.

“We go all out with our decorations,” said Delta Mu Sigma Public Relations Officer, Shannon Kassab.  “We’ll completely transform the Smeal Building.”  

The theme for the haunted house is “Haunted Hollywood presents, Theatre of Horrors”.  Those brave enough to venture inside can view portions of classic horror films while they wait for the haunted tour to begin.  Frankenstein, Night of The Living Dead, and Texas Chainsaw Massacre are some of the films to be featured. 

The cost is $3.00 for adults and $2.00 for children.  All proceeds benefit THON, the Penn State dance marathon that raises money for pediatric cancer research.  Organizers warn the haunted house may be too scary for young children, but that’s no reason youngsters shouldn’t come to campus in costume with their candy bags ready. 

A Safe Trick-or-Treat Night is planed from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. Saturday, October 27, in the campus gymnasium.  Members of Penn State DuBois Student Clubs will don their costumes and hand out candy to kids 12 and under.
