By Cody Konieczski
OCT. 24 -- Trine University’s Department of Humanities and Communication (HAC) is
in inviting students, faculty and staff to come see the Haunted Hall of Humanities
in Taylor Hall. Spooky events will start Sunday and go for a week to celebrate Halloween.
Each day there will be a different and new event, concluding with the HAC or Treat
Here are the events for each day:
- Halloween Concert at 3 p.m. Sunday in the T. Furth Center for Performing Arts’ Ryan Concert Hall. It
will be presented by the Trine Chamber Orchestra, University Choir and Musical Theatre/Opera
- Night Frights: Fireside Stories with HAC at 7 p.m. Monday at the fire pit outside of Centennial Station. The event will be
co-sponsored by the Multicultural Student Organization (MSO) and the Office of Student
Success and Retention. Planned are scary ghost stories, deadly s’mores snacks and
ghoulish apple cider to drink if you dare.
- Poe: The Man Behind the Mustache at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday at Wells Theater, Taylor Hall. Lou Ann Homan, an adjunct instructor
and storyteller, will give a presentation about Edgar Allan Poe as part of the Humanities
- Poe Night at 7 and 9 p.m. Wednesday at Wells Theater, Taylor Hall. Planned are separate presentations
of the third annual night of theatrical terror as Homan leads groups of students in
telling and performing some of Edgar Allan Poe’s stories and poetry.
- “It Follows” film screening at 7 p.m. Thursday at Fabiani Theatre, Rick L. and Vicki
L. James University Center. Presented as part of The Overlooked Film Festival, “It
Follows” tells of suburban Detroit young people stalked by something horrible. It
cannot be stopped and the only way to save themselves might be to condemn the next
- HAC or Treat: Costume Contest from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday on the first floor of Taylor Hall. During that time,
costumed students are encouraged to stop by to be photographed and entered into the
contest. Or, just stop by to take a tour of the scary decorations of Taylor Hall and
enjoy candy. Prizes will go to the top three student costumes.
