Halloween Bash at WSC a Monstrous Success

The Wellness & Success Center's (WSC) Halloween Bash was, as their name implies, a success! More than 600 students and members of the campus community were on hand to paint pumpkins, walk the haunted house, and do the monster mash at the Zumba dance party.

Take a look at the photos to see the fun and costumes, and check out what else the WSC has to offer.

The event was cosponsored by the Campus Activities Board, Student Government Association, and the O’Kane Theatre, along with volunteers from numerous clubs and organizations.

All faculty, students, and staff are encouraged to attend WSC's biannual Health Fair next Wednesday, Nov. 15. The fair will offer fitness assessments, demonstrations, free food distribution, and valuable information about health and wellness services. The fun begins at 9 a.m. in ACAD 300 and the OMB Portico.
