Halloween haunted house planned at McEwen television studio
Just in time for Halloween, the McEwen Hall television studio will be transformed into a haunted house by students in the Department of Communication’s Ambassadors Program on Sunday, Oct. 30, from 3 to 5 p.m.
Turns out the ground floor spaces, G09 and G10, are an ideal fit for such an attraction.
The large studio space, G09, which features high ceilings, will be divided into different scenes typically associated with haunted houses, noted Hannah Barden, a senior Communication Studies major from Ithaca.
“Because it’s in the communication department, we are able to reserve some of the equipment – lights, mics and speakers – for use at the event,” Ms. Barden added.
In fact, several students in the Ambassadors Program are also Video Production and Audio/Radio majors, so their expertise can be applied to achieve the maximum effect of the equipment, Ms. Barden added. Concessions such as cookies and candy will also be offered.
There will also be a photo booth, equipped with Halloween props, available to take high-quality student photos. A raffle of donated items will be held and concessions, such as cookies and candy, will be available.
The haunted house is open to all members of the campus as well as community members.
There is no admission charge, but donations will be appreciated to help support Ambassador Program activities that are designed to help first-year and transfer students learn about the communication department.
