For Halloween this year, the DMACC Boone Campus Student Activities Council put on a ‘Boo Bash” that included a DJ, dancing, and a costume contest.
The ‘Boo Bash’ was held in the Courter Center and decorated in the spirit of Halloween. SAC participants spent the two days before the event hanging up streamers, posters, balloons, and a photo backdrop to make the experience worthwhile.
This event went from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. the Thursday before Halloween giving students and staff the week to enjoy other festivities.
During the dance, a playlist was prepared with songs from the charts today, Halloween classics, and whatever others requested. The Student Activities Council provided cookies, candy, juice, and other snacks to those in attendance.
Jadeyn Smith, a second-year business transfer student, and SAC and Women’s Basketball participant said that the event helped her connect with her peers.
“I thought that this was a great event to get student engagement and help me connect with others on campus that I would usually not see regularly.”
The Women’s Basketball team had an away game that night, getting back to campus almost halfway through the dance.
“It was great to see all the girls from the [Women’s Basketball] team show up after having a game on the road. It showed how much they participate in campus events,” Lydia Harvey, SAC advisor and Women’s Basketball coach stated.
For the costume contest, a photo was taken in front of the booth so the costume could be considered for the contest. It was scored in categories of individual and group costumes.
The winner of the individual costume was the guy dressed as Eminem and the winner of the group costume consisted of a nun, a pickle, and a basketball player.
To add to the festivities, SAC also put on an apartment door decorating contest for those who live on campus. Winning a $45 gift card, the contest winners were as follows: Lexi Branning, Jensen Archibald, Reagan Franzen, and Rebekah Fuller.
The last event for Halloween that the SAC put on was ‘Trick or Treat’ in the Courter Center. This event was just to award the students some candy and snacks as they are going from class to class and see involvement.
“We did so many events to get our students engaged and celebrate the spirit of Halloween and seeing the interactions with students and professors in the Courter Center shows the connections that can be made here at DMACC,” Harvey said.
