Curious Cat Finds Out What Villanova Students are Wearing for Halloween

"Curious Cat Banner"

It’s officially spooky season at Villanova, and we searched to find out what the “It” look will be. “What Halloween costume do you plan to wear?” we asked.

Sure, a few people responded “Nope” to dressing up, but we found a trio of Falvey student patrons who will put “The Shining” on their outfits this upcoming holiday. (Apologies for the terrible movie puns!)

Note: Falvey Library will be hosting two Halloween-themed events. Join us for “Trick and Treats from the Vault” October 31 and community trick or treat on the Riley Ellipse, Oct. 29, 5 p.m. until dusk.
