Falvey’s Display Wins High Praise During Tent-Or-Treat Event

By Falvey Staff

Hocus Pocus Themed Tent

Halloween is a time for spooky scares and sweet treats, and the Library staff are always excited to celebrate this high point of the fall season.

This year, of course, the campus held an event with a focus on safety as well as revelry. Tent-or-Treat, organized by Community First, allowed more than 50 student organizations and departments to deck out tents with candy and other fun giveaways. Falvey’s tent struck a witchy theme, complete with decor inspired by the cult classic Hocus Pocus and Wizard of Oz. (The Wicked Witch of the East’s legs jutted out from under the table, complete with red, sparkly Crocs.)

The Library staff also distributed a cornucopia of tempting swag, including Halloween- and Library-themed stress balls, buttons, stickers, and notepads.

The tent was tied for the best department tent at the event. Organizers especially enjoyed the execution of the seasonal theme as well as the close attention to detail displayed throughout.

Contributing members included:

  • Millicent Gaskell, Library Director
  • Joanne Quinn, Director of Communication and Marketing
  • Regina Duffy, Communication and Marketing Manager
  • Shawn Proctor, Communication and Marketing Manager
  • Kallie Stahl, Communication and Marketing Specialist

Fun Friday: The Wicked Jack ‘O Lantern of the West Stacks

It’s almost that time of year again: Falvey-ween!

And, at this time of year the Wicked Jack ‘O Lantern of the West Stacks likes to come out and renew his love of reading. This year, he picked up selections that would be sure to delight, surprise, and scare; including those by Stephen King, Samuel Delaney, and Mira Grant.

While it might appear from this time lapse that the rumors about hauntings in the West Stacks are true, these are actually energy efficient motion sensing lights that shut off when no one passes by. On second thought…I didn’t see anyone in the video that made them turn on, did you?
