There’s nothing spookier than ghosting on Halloween. So celebrate before you turn into a pumpkin at midnight!
by David Keller
Halloween season is almost over and it’s time to finally whip out that costume that’ll leave everyone talking. Never fear: You still have time to get candy crunk on campus.
9 a.m.: Hear a Scary Story
Wake up and make your way over to the Pollak Library by 9 a.m. for a live continuous read of all 280 pages of Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein.
Not only is Frankenstein a classic monster story, it’s also the 200-year anniversary of the book being published.
The book will be orated by some familiar CSUF faculty and alumni.
According to the Pollak Library’s website, “Dean Emily Bonney will start, and special guests include President Fram Virjee, Julie Virjee, and Dr. Kari Knutson-Miller, Provost and VP of Academic Affairs.”

12 p.m.: Buy A Last-Minute Costume
This year, Spirit Halloween opened its doors conveniently near campus, located in the plaza across Chapman Blvd. (Right next to Captivate Nail Spa if you need a bright orange manicure).
Spirit Halloween is basically a department store dedicated entirely to costumes and decorations. They had extended hours until 10 p.m. through Tuesday night. And they’ll be closing up shop until next season soon.
But don’t sweat it: Spirit Halloween will be open Wednesday, Oct. 31, through Friday, Nov. 2, until 8 p.m. each evening.
So you can still snag a disguise for Halloween weekend #2.
7 p.m.: Get Your Dance On
The CSUF Salsa Club Trick or Treat Social will run from 7-to-10 p.m. in Kinesiology & Health Science room 203. Make sure you come decked out in your Halloween best.
Daniel Cha, a computer science major and current Salsa Club president, is inviting all the student body, regardless of dancing background or whether or not you’re a current salsa club member to their special annual “Treat or Trick Social.”
“Guests can expect a fun night of socializing, dancing, and a bit of learning as we will have a DJ, and offer a dance workshop by a professional instructor,” he said.
Tickets are only $3 for non-members for this spooktacular event!
If you’re still on the fence, Daniel notes that “We do typically have a costume contest where attendees can win a prize.”
