No tricks, just treats! The Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences hosted the annual Halloween Social event on Oct. 24 to brought out the fun and spooky spirit in the graduate students.
The event consisted of costume contest where students dressed up as Dorothy from Wizard of Oz, a watermelon, the wizards from Hocus Pocus, and a “Cholo.” The top three winners received grand prizes provided by the graduate school.
Aside from the contest, there were arts and crafts activities like mini pumpkin paintings and DIY monster donuts. All supplies were provided, students were free to use their creativity to decorate the scariest—or the cutest monster donuts and mini pumpkins!
Alex Kirkpatrick, a student in the Integrated Biomedical Sciences program, said pumpkin painting is her favorite part of the event.
“I love painting, but due to my busy life as a graduate student it’s been hard for me to find time for it,” Kirkpatrick said.
Many students thanked the school for hosting events like this that helped them destress from their busy lives, and get to know students from different programs.
The Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences would like to thank all the students who participated in the Halloween Social event, and congrats to those who won the costume contest. Happy Halloween!
