Clowns, Beetlejuice and even John Lennon invaded campus for one last Halloween night.

Student Government hosted the second annual Boo Bash in the Cellar of the A Building Nov. 1 for students to celebrate Halloween one more time before putting costumes away for another year.

This is the second year in a row the event has been held after Halloween, being Nov. 2 last year at the first Boo Bash.

Nick Manor, Student Government liaison, believed the event was a success.

“I think we had a great turn out,” Manor said. “Around 50 people came the first hour.”

Kaleb Rath, a student on campus, came dressed as Beetlejuice and said he had fun at the event.

“It’s fantastic! I like it,” Rath said. “I love the decorative knives. It’s alarming at first glance.”

Michael Nixon donned a Dracula costume and played pool most of the event.

“I’m playing pool against a very hard opponent,” Nixon joked. “Myself.”

Nixon said he needed the practice for a family match coming up.

Like last year, a costume contest was held.

This year Jerry Meade, dressed as John Lennon, won the costume contest. Runner up was Rose Tibai, dressed as a Viking warrior. Third place went to Ashley Glaeser, dressed as a princess, and Jacob Drew, who dressed as a dragon.

First place prize was a $30 gift card, second place was a $20 gift card to Starbucks and third place was a $10 gift card to Starbucks.

Glaeser said she doesn’t drink coffee, but Drew does, and she was excited to win.

Alyssa Masserant, Student Government vice-president, said she was proud of the event.

“They (Student Government members) worked very hard on the decorations and planning,” she said.

Seth Collins chaired the event and Victoria Rorke was cochair.

DJ Martin, the DJ for last year’s Boo Bash, returned to play for the party.

Pizza, pop, chips and baked goods were provided during the event.

Students had the option to pay $5 or pay $2 and bring a canned food item as a donation.

Manor said roughly 40 canned food items were collected, but a definite count would not be available until after the event.
