On Oct. 31, students celebrated Halloween, one of the spookiest holidays of the year. There seemed to be two major plans on most of the students’ agenda this fall break: visit a college or have a relaxing weekend at home. For those who stayed home, their weekend consisted of carving pumpkins, watching scary movies or going trick-or-treating.

“[During fall break] I stayed home and mainly decorated pumpkins. For Halloween, I just hung out with my friends,” Gabriella Goncher (12) said.

However, many students decided to leave the region for break. Those that did decided to explore the college life during Halloween.

“I went to Purdue [University] for the weekend, and it was really fun. I plan to go there for college, so it was cool to get a sneak peak of the campus,” Autumn Zendzian (12) said.
The long weekend was eventful for most, but now that Fall Break and Halloween is over, students cannot help but get ready for the holiday season.
