Students Carve Into the Halloween Season

Brookdale’s Office of Student Life and Activities (SLA) kicked off this year’s slate of Halloween-themed programs with the annual Pumpkin Carving and Painting contest, held in the Student Life Center on Oct. 1.

Students create a personalized work of art during the 2015 Pumpkin Carving and Painting Contest on Oct. 1.

Dozens of students came by to choose the perfect gourd and turn it into a work of art – or a work of horror – while competing for gift cards and other prizes.

Attendees were also able to start their “trick or treating” a little early by loading up on candy and other free refreshments during the event.

Find out about upcoming Student Life programs, including the terrifying Haunted Theater at Brookdale’s Performing Arts Center, by checking out the SLA Events Calendar.
