Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity hosted a Halloween party to get Clarion University of Pennsylvania students to boogie, whether through dancing or being scared from the variety of costumes.
On Friday, Oct. 31, students gathered in the Gemmell Food Court to attend the party.
Dewayne Anderson, president of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity at Clarion, said, “I think it was a success, but there’s always room for improvement, so it could have been better. The costume portion lived up to the expected hype. I was very pleased with all the costumes I saw.”
Cortez Carey, vice president of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity at Clarion said, “The actual goal was to raise money for our chapter (Mu Phi) because we aren’t given any money by the university to host events and educational programs in the publics interest. The reason we chose this holiday is because it gives everyone a chance to dress up as something they’re not and obtain a different identity for a night.”
Among the many costumes there were a few that stood out including nuns, firewomen, skeletons, clowns, and Alice from “Alice in Wonderland.”
The creativity mixed with the music created an interesting atmosphere. The disc jockey for the night was Jourdan Blanding, DJ Ju, who played a variety of current and past hits to dance to.
Melaiya Jones said, “It was a lot of fun, and there was a really good turn-out. They played good music and I can’t wait for the next one.”
Torron Mollett said, “The party was great. I was excited that everyone had dressed up for Halloween. This was a well-put-together party that I believed everyone had enjoyed and I truly can’t wait for 2015 Halloween.”
The party ended around 2 a.m., and the crowd was still active after the party ended. Even though everyone was upset it ended, there were guaranteed events in the near future.
Upcoming events include the Hot Chokolate Social on Nov. 13 to get to know the Kappas. There is also a week of events known as the “Kappa Week.”
Carey said, “This week includes learning how to dress professionally to making hand-made Christmas cards for your family members.”
