Halloween is coming soon – and I couldn’t be more excited! I love getting dressed up and celebrating with my friends, and during the week leading up to October 31, Brock is the place to be!

The General Brock Store (an all-inclusive convenience store on campus) is selling cheap Halloween costumes right here at school – how convenient is that? There are also decorations all over the place. I am writing at “The Daily Grind” cafe as we speak – a Starbucks coffee shop on campus – and they’re showing off their Halloween spirit!

Brock also likes to give back in and around Halloween, holding various charitable and spirited events both on and off campus. On October 31st Brock’s United Way campaign is holding a Halloween 5K Fun Run (or walk). Participants raise money to run or walk two circuits around campus in costume with proceeds going towards the United Way of St. Catharines and District. Sounds like a fun way to give back! The Trick or Treat Community Food Drive held by  Student Life and Community Experience is also on October 31st, where students travel from neighbourhood to neighbourhood collecting non-perishable food items. It’s also a fun way to check out all the trick-or-treaters’ costumes!

Personally, my favourite part of Halloween at Brock is the celebration at Isaac’s Bar and Grill – our on campus entertainment complex! This Thursday is the Monster Ball, a 19+ event with a costume contest. After much deliberation, I’ve decided I’ll be going dressed as Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffany’s (AKA Audrey Hepburn).

My Halloween costume!

Not to worry for all of you first-years, Isaac’s has an all ages event as well this coming Saturday! It is also a costume party with prizes to be won and fun to be had. Both events promise to be a great time!

Brock brings the fun back to Halloween for those of us that are now too old for trick-or-treating  🙂
