“Carn-Evil”: haunted Memorial Union

Lauren Miller

On Oct. 26 to 27, the Oregon State University Program Council (OSUPC) and Memorial Union (MU) activities will be hosting the special event called “Haunted Memorial Union.” The event goes from 9:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. and admission is free for all OSU students.

“The main purpose for this program is to have alternative programming for students,” Sierra Blair, OSUPC Special Events Coordinator, said. Having activities for students who aren’t able to afford or travel to participate in certain activities is the main goal of the OSUPC. They provide events around campus for students to have opportunities to participate in fun games and programs all year-round.

The theme of this year’s event is “Carn-evil,” focusing on carnival-themed horror games. There will be a Haunted Maze, Craft Center events, bowling, roller rinks, carnival booths, and many other games happening at the MU! All students are welcome and there will be different performances going on each night.

The OSU Programming Council, or OSUPC, is a student-led organization focusing on helping students and the community by providing free and accessible events around campus. They have hosted other big events this year such as Welcome Week and Homecoming Week activities. If you want to be involved in OSUPC or volunteer for these types of events, they are on Instagram @OSUPC or online here.

The Haunted Memorial Union event is open to every OSU student, and it’s an opportunity to celebrate Halloween in a safe environment. “I’m really excited to see how it all comes together,” Blair said.
