Devils, cowgirls and even a bloody Freddy Krueger took over Pflueger Hall Oct. 19.
Costumed Lutes showed their Halloween spirit this month by dancing, decorating cookies and painting pumpkins during Pflueger’s annual all-hall event, Pflueger Pfright Night. Pflueger’s Residence Hall Council organized the event.
Pflueger’s RHC vice president, sophomore Erin McCoy, estimated about 350 students filtered through over the course of three hours.
“Our RHC did a great job of planning Pfright Night,” McCoy said.
Every gathering area was packed, including the dance floor, second floor lounge and lobby. They even ran out of pumpkins for decorating because of such a high attendance.
Students entered the scene through smoke-machine fog and Halloween decorations. The hall’s walls and windows were covered in fake blood. Kristoffer Larsen, a non-graduate international student, said he thought the event was well decorated.
Luca Lezzi, sustainability director for Pflueger’s RHC, described Pfright Night as a Halloween dance party with activities. This year included
cookie decorating and pumpkin painting, “because carving [pumpkins] can get really messy,” Lezzi said.
McCoy said Pflueger’s RHC spent weeks coming up with ideas for the evening, so there was a lot for everyone to do.
“From the photo booth to the costume contest, each of our activities was a success,” she said.
For the costume contest, judges named the scariest, funniest and most original outfits to reward the efforts Lutes put into their costumes.
According to Residential Life’s Pflueger Hall page, “Pfright Night” is one of the many “pfun” events put on by
Pflueger throughout the year.
“It was a great night with a lot to do,” sophomore Jillian Stanphill said. “I had so much fun dressing up with my friends.”
