  • Repairing the Family
    By Jay Grummel Earlier this month I wrote about fond families, however the holidays are made up of many different types of families. Some will be hostile and dysfunctional or some will be loving and understanding. Whatever your family looks like this season, it’s always nice to read about ones other than your own. So, […]
  • Review of The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
    Let’s time-travel to the year 2012 and the world is raving about none other than Katniss Everdeen. I remember being in elementary school, begging my mother to let me dress up as her for my birthday. Now it’s over ten years later and I’m still just as excited for the new movie as I was […]

UAO plans, sets trip to Halloweekends

As Halloween gets closer, students will soon find a way to celebrate the holiday at the University.

The University Activities Organization is taking students to Cedar Point’s Halloweekends on October 19, after purchasing a ticket for $30 which includes transportation to the amusement park there and back.

Co-Director of series in UAO Ally Tharrett said last year the organization took freshman students to Cedar Point during opening weekend and this year the group wanted to do something different. The types of trips the group hosts is up to the directors in charge, which changes each year, she said.

“We just decided it would be a great time to go during Halloweekends and it is really cheap too,” Tharrett said. “It took a lot of hard work and time and to see everyone buy tickets and come is a great thing.”

Adviser of UAO Mike Freyaldenhoven said the organization uses Front-Line Buses making the booking process easier for transportation. They set a budget by what the trip will cost to go and how much it will cost the program, he said.

UAO has more than 70 members and is great in representing not only the University, but other places in Ohio, he said.

“We want to introduce people to the area and we’re uniquely situated to be close to Chicago, Detroit and bigger Ohio cities,” Freyaldenhoven said. “We just want to expose students to those places.”

Co-Director of series in UAO Ariel Chachoff said the trip isn’t only cheap for students, but it gives them the opportunity to have fun off campus.

“We just thought it would be a good way for people to get out of town for just one day, even if you’re still in Ohio and go experience some Halloween fun,” Chachoff said. “Living in the residence hall my first two years I didn’t do anything related to Halloween because nothing was really offered. This gives students a chance to do some Halloween activities.”

Students who want to purchase a ticket for the trip must present their ID card at the Union Information Desk. Buses will leave at 1 p.m. and will arrive back at the University at 12 a.m.

“Cedar Point’s tickets for Halloweekends are expensive and I’m glad we’re offering an affordable price,” Chachoff said. “We keep getting the crowd out there and I keep hearing people saying they’re going to go and buy their ticket. It’s really exciting.”
