Capilouto hosts Halloween social



By Corey Elam

 Even with classes, the spirit of Halloween was alive on campus Monday.

Dr. Mary Lynne Capilouto hosted a Halloween cookie social at Maxwell Place, where students were invited to carve pumpkins, eat cookies and drink apple cider.

The event was a brief break from class and other mid-semester committments.

“The end of the semester is more terrifying than any haunted house or scary movie I’ve seen,” Jonathon Koshy, an English sophomore, said. “This is just to help students know we’re here, and to help them enjoy this beautiful day,”  Capilouto said. Also in the courtyard were students carving pumpkins to represent university classes like UK 101.

“I used to carve pumpkins every year before I moved,” Matthew Kinney, a pre-med sophomore, said. “Not saying I’m too good at it, but the thought counts.”
