On Monday, October 27th, students had the opportunity to go to a Paranormal Investigator and Ghost Hunt event, where “Ghost Cop” Stacy Jones talked about her experiences of being a paranormal investigator. She shared stories, audio clips from her investigations that had supernatural elements and pictures that showed “Shadow People.” Stacy talked about certain investigations that she and her group, “Central NY Ghost Hunters,” investigated, specifically in the Rolling Hills Asylum, Eastern State Penitentiary, and a Bed and Breakfast in New York. She also talked about personal encounters, for example, when she and her son were inhabited by the supernatural. After she finished her lecture, she took a group of students out to the cemetery in order to find ghosts, taking pictures of the “Shadow People” and talking to the ghosts through a Frank’s Box. Unfortunately, we did not find anything, but it was still fun!
Then, today, October 29th, SEB, the Student Events Board, sponsored a Zombie Run throughout campus starting at the Cater Walk. Students could either choose to be Zombies or people running from them. However, that not all! The festivities continue on Halloween night with a Pumpkin Carving Contest, an American Horror Story themed haunted house in Middle Hall, and a Halloween party at Phi Delta Theta’s Club Cecil. Finally, the Halloween week will end with a movie marathon, which will show “Hocus Pocus” and “The Exorcist.”
