Happy Halloween!Posted October 28th, 2011 by bowmasar
It’s that time of year again where the leaves start to change and the wool socks get pulled out of storage! Halloween is just around the corner and Corvallis is filled with things to do! Halloween can be a fun and exciting holiday for those who choose to participate in the festivities but there are some precautions that you should take to make sure that you have a safe and fun weekend!
Make sure that you have your money and ID with you at all times - There will be a lot of people around and keeping your belongings with you is the only way to be sure you will not lose them.
Be aware of who you are talking to - Many costumes include masks that make it hard to recognize the person you are talking with. Make sure you know what the people you are with are wearing as well so you can find them if, and when, you are ready to leave.
Use the buddy system - Simply, do not go anywhere alone. If you are going out with a group of people, make sure that you arrive and leave with all members of your group. Look out for each other and keep each other safe.
Stay out of the roads - Cars may not be able to see you if you have a dark costume or the driver could be drunk so use the crosswalks and stay on the sidewalks at all times!
For those of you who want to participate in Halloween festivities but do not want to go out, here are a few links to Halloween events happening on campus:
