Quick Hits: Halloween

This Halloween, as you indulge in the typical horror film, candy eating and apple bobbing, try to think about all of the scary things that surround you daily. You might not even realize how terrifying the Villanova experience actually is, so the following are some of the top scary moments at Villanova that we all experience year-round:

1. Losing Your Wildcard

The two phases you go through when you lose your Wildcard are extreme shock/frustration and depression when you realize the replacement card costs $30.

 

2. Falvey West

I am pretty sure I see this guy every time I go into the Falvey West Stacks

 

3. Scary Tunnel

It is scary enough walking underneath a train line, but the fear is compounded by the sound of a million crickets chirping and the flickering lights.

4. Running out of points before the end of the semester

Cue the frantic call to Mom detailing how you are on the verge of death from starvation.

 

5. Tolentine Hall

Frankly, the entire building deserves to be on this list, with the seemingly endless hallways and the 19th century Gothic look. Even the chairs in the basement are meant to scare you

 

6. Squirrels

The squirrels around campus are vicious and bold. I would not be surprised if I saw this on campus this Halloween:

7. Amtrak Trains

The exact expression on people’s faces when they first experience the Amtrak train careening down the tracks:

 

 

8. Getting around on campus at night and just missing the shuttle

The campus is especially eerie at night, and your only escape from loneliness and despair is slowly pulling away from you:

 

9. Losing a library book

 


No, we will not steal your soul like in the movie Mortal Kombat, but it is still a scary experience. To avoid this, remember to check your library account online and renew your material.
