Halloween haunted trail comes to St. Anne's Hermitage
As the leaves begin to change color and Halloween decorations fill students' windows across campus, Marist is once again gearing up for the Haunted Trail at St. Anne's Hermitage. On Sunday, Oct. 28 from 8 to 10 p.m., the Student Government Association along with various volunteers will be holding their annual Haunted Trail event. Last year, 150 students came out to see what the Haunted Trail was all about. Since then, the Class of 2014 has been working hard on improving the program for about a month and a half.
"We held the Haunted Trail last year, and we want to make it bigger and scarier than last year," said Diana Dubs, secretary of the class of 2014.
St. Anne's Hermitage is located behind Gartland Commons and the trail starts at the ROTC house. The trail consists of a 15-minute walk. At the end of the tour, there will be a Halloween Carnival in the St. Anne's parking lot, featuring games and a variety of food hosted by different.
Some clubs that had booths at the trail last year that are going to attend this year include Fashion Inc., Marist College Club of Theatre Arts, Red Ink, Students Encouraging Environmental Dedication, and the Class of 2015. There were about thirty volunteers that came from various clubs that helped out during last year's program.
"I absolutely love everything about fall time and Halloween," sophomore Brittany Jelinski said. "I would love to go to the Haunted Trail because it is something fun to do and it is something you cannot do everyday. I really look forward to this time of year."
The Haunted Trail was thought up by Deborah Akinwumni, president of the class of 2014. Volunteers throughout the trail get their make-up done by the members of Fashion Inc. This adds to the spookiness to the program as a whole.
"As a Marist student, I believe that it is a wasted opportunity if you do not take advantage of the events that Marist puts on for the students," sophomore Alex McCahill, who plans to attend this year's Haunted Trail, said. "From $25 Broadway tickets to this Haunted Trail, Marist offers a wide variety of entertainment for people of all interests."
With Halloween right around the corner, the SGA hopes that the Haunted Trail will get Marist students excited for Halloween. Students who would like to volunteer for the Haunted Trail can contact the Student Government Association for more details.
