Ghouls, goblins and ghosts, oh my!

Halloween isn’t all about eating candy and going to parties. Some NIU students have more planned than just going out and dressing up.

Movies are on the menu for one student.

“I love watching all the ‘Saw’ movies the week before Halloween with my family,” Xena Nelms, senior family and child studies major, said.



Carving pumpkins is a family tradition that one NIU student just can’t pass up.

“My family likes to carve pumpkins, put up a few decorations around the house and pass out candy to the neighborhood kids”  senior communications major Michael Olson said.



Halloween just isn’t the same without delicious food for this huskie.

“I really enjoy roasting pumpkin seeds and carving pumpkins with my family,” Sara Wogaski, senior business management major, said.


Family traditions are important to this NIU student.

“I love going trick or treating with my little brother around the neighborhood,” Christian Molina, junior corporate communications major, said.



Whatever your tradition is, make sure to have a great time and be safe this Halloween!
