17 Ways To Celebrate Halloween In College
Allie Slagter

Growing up the last night of October was filled with excitement. Finally, after all the preparation, you got to put on your new costume and get SO MUCH CANDY! However, one of the worst things about Halloween is eventually you're too old to go trick-or-treating without getting judged. Although there comes a time in everyone's life where the trick-or-treating has to end, there's still so many ways you can celebrate, especially when you're in college.

Here are my 17 ways to continue celebrating in college.

1. Halloween Movie Marathon!

My personal favorites include "The Little Vampire" (pictured above), the "Halloweentown" franchise, and "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown."

2. Group Costumes.

You all might be older now, but everyone still wants to dress up, and what better way to do that then with a bunch of your best friends.

3. Pumpkin Picking.

(apple picking would also be acceptable.)

4. Pumpkin Painting or Carving.

If you're still living in a dorm painting might save you some clean up, and both are just as exciting.

5. Discounted Candy!

Nothing better than taking a trip to your local drug store or supermarket on November 1st to find everything that didn't sell.

6. Halloween Themed Parties.

7. Updated Dorm Decorations.

This is the first "major" holiday since being away at school, aka the perfect excuse to update your dorm decor.

8. Pumpkin Spiced Flavored EVERYTHING!

PSL is the perfect morning treat.

9. Haunted Houses.

This may be my personal absolute favorite thing about the fall.

10. Go to a Corn Maze.

Haunted or not, both are acceptable.

11. Go on a Hayride.

again, haunted or not is acceptable.

12. CANDY CORN!!!

If you don't love candy corn as strongly as I do, you can leave.

13. Find a Local Haunted Place to Visit.

I'm talking real life ghosts. Every town has some place where some things can only be explained via ghosts.

14. Watch Ghost Hunting Shows.

Going out and following your own ghosts might not be everyone's cup of tea, but luckily you can do it from the comfort of your own home.

15. Make Orange Colored Desserts.

If the candy isn't enough, there's load of fun halloween desserts to be made.

16. Tell Horror Stories.

I'm talking classic sleepover cliche flashlight to your face in order to really make it dramatic.

17. Go Trick-or-treating!

Lastly, there might be a way for you to still experience the joy of trick-or-treating one last time. Or help hand out the candy, whatever your cup of tea is.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
