In true Halloween spirit, MCCC Student Government will be hosting numerous festive events starting Friday from Oct. 20 until Wednesday, Oct. 25. All events will be held on campus and are free to all MCCC students.

Dan Spain, Student Government liaison, said he has high hopes regarding Halloween week, anticipating a strong turnout and an enjoyable experience for all attendees.

“We are prepared for an awesome turnout and for everyone to have a great time. The goal is to generate as much joy and smiling faces as possible,” Spain said. 

Halloween Bash (Dance): The dance will be held on Friday, Oct. 20, from 6 to 8 p.m. in The Cellar. There will be refreshments provided by the Student Government. Students may wear Halloween costumes and outfits to compete in a costume contest.

Pumpkin Decorating: This festivity will occur on Monday, Oct. 23, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the C Building lounge. Pumpkins and art supplies will be provided along with refreshments.  

Spooky Family Feud: The game show will take place on Tuesday, Oct. 24, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the S Building Cafeteria.  

Zombie Shooting Simulator: This unique festivity will take place on Wednesday, Oct. 25, from 1 to 6 p.m. and take place in Z building. Dan Wood, criminal justice professor, will host the event as a collaborative effort of the Criminal Justice program and MCCC’s Student Government. Spain explained how the immersive simulator works. 

“It is an accurate simulator that develops a trainee’s ability to fire their weapon,”Spain said. “It uses three projectors and is like VR without a headset.” 

The campus map can be found on MCCC’s website for building and parking lot locations.
