Celebrate Fall with Haunted Week; Free events, including a Community Trick or Treat

Posted October 8, 2015 at 10:23 am

Pennsylvania Highlands Community College is celebrating the fall season by planning several free events open to the public, including students, faculty, and staff, and members of the community. All events will be held on the College’s Richland Campus at 101 Community College Way, and will include the following:

  • Monday, October 26, from 6pm to 7:30pm: A community trick or treat will be held throughout the Richland Campus for children 12 and under. This will be combined with fall games and crafts for the children, and a haunted hallway
  • Tuesday, October 27, 12:30pm to 2pm: Held in the Cyber Lounge, a themed murder mystery, “A Spooky Hollow Horror” will occur. The grand celebration of the new owner has been overshadowed by the spine-chilling murder of one of the guests. Since everyone is a suspect, this ghoulish gang is out for an afternoon of fright and horror! All guests will have fun playing their unique characters and investigating this unpredictable outcome. Contact Jake Goch to register at 814.262.6486 or jgoch@pennhighlands.edu.
  • Wednesday, October 28, from 1pm to 3pm: Want to star in your own short Halloween horror movie? It only takes 10 minutes. The Media Production Club wants to give you the title role in the blockbuster hit “School of the Damned!” Your character will be thrown into the terrifying Zombie Pit (the courtyard) to battle and live to see another day. How will it end? The choice is yours! And, don’t forget to watch the credits for the bonus post-credits scene. This black and white horror extravaganza comes complete with full production and your name in the credits, and the Club will provide you with a electronic copy of your masterpiece. A $5 donation to the Media Production Club would be accepted to help fund future projects. Schedule your appointment with stardom by emailing Glenn Barbis at v385o2@pennhighlands.edu.
  • Friday, October 30, from 12:30pm to 2pm: Held in the Cyber Lounge, the second annual reading of select works by Edgar Allen Poe will be done by students. Works include “The Raven”, “The Cask of Amontillado”, and others. Come and join us for an afternoon of eerie literary fun listening to some of Poe’s psychological thrillers! For die hard Poe fans, feel free to come dressed in your best 1840s period attire.
