Coco, costumes and contests at the Quad Haunt

Quad Haunt was back for its annual halloween event. Hosted by the associated students, the event featured many fun activities for students such as a pumpkin carving contest, costumes contest, pie eating contest, and a booth decorating contest for students to participate in.

Halloween music was played throughout the event, light refreshments and pumpkin bread were offered to all students. Students with A.S. benefits had access to delicious spaghetti.

“I really enjoy seeing this event all come together. It’s a great way for students to have fun and interact on campus while still celebrating Halloween,” said Aaron Untiveros, Vice President of Activities and journalism major.

This years quad haunt prizes for the contest winners included tickets to Knott’s Berry Farm, a pizza party from Sodexo, and gift cards for Target or Starbucks.

Students were also able to look around the different participating club booths to get more information about what their clubs are about, their upcoming events and free candy was offered to students who went to the booths.

The multiple clubs participated in the best decorated club booth contest and got creative and decorated with spooky and fun decor. The winner for best decorated club booth was the Natural Science booth, taking second was the American Sign Language booth and the French club booth took third.

“This is my third quad haunt and favorite part is seeing all the inspiring costumes and decorations people come up with,” said student David Seyler. Seyler dressed as a juggling clown to pay tribute to his grandfather who used to be an entertainer.

The costume contest drew in the biggest crowd at the event as students dressed up in a wide variety of costumes. First place for the solo category went to the student dressed as Mother Nature.

“Quad haunt is such a great way to generate club interest and expose them to clubs they may not have known about. The other clubs and A.S.were all very supportive with each others booths,” said Liz Yuktirat, winner of the duo costume contest. Yuktirat demonstrated her appreciation for french culture by dressing up as Marie Antoinette.
