SGA Haunted House

By Claudia Balthazar, Staff Writer

Student Government Association, along with Resident Student Association and Lion's Den, will turn Roosevelt Hall into a haunted house on Saturday October 29. There are other organizations helping out such as Hofstra vs. Zombies, Women of Action and Alpha Epsilon Pi. It will cost $5 at the door and $2 at Atrium tables and all of the proceeds will go to the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. According to the St. Jude's website, it is the only pediatric cancer research center where families never pay for treatment not covered by insurance.

SGA Programming Chair and sophomore, Caitlin Rauchle said, "We wanted to make it fun and scary, but it's also a charity event."

Since the event is so big, members of SGA were mandated to sit for at least one hour at the atrium tables this week. Rauchle said the hour was mandated because the event needed to be promoted as much as possible so that it could receive high attendance.

Keith Agyeman, a graduate OSLA assistant, said, "Atrium tables do help [to promote events] but are not the only source of promoting the event especially with so many [popular] networking sites." Agyeman sat at an atrium table as he spoke, promoting Senior Service Day on Nov. 18.
