“I grew up in a Christian home, so we never celebrated Halloween. I’ve never been trick-or-treating, and I have never dressed up,” said exercise science freshman Joy Counts.”I dressed up for theatre before, but this year I do plan on trick-or-treating, and my friend wants me to be a nurse.” | Deaunte Johnson/The Cougar
“I’m not sure if I am going as a reaper, or if I can finish the dress by Halloween, a cute Lolita style devil, ” said hospitality freshman Kaitlyn Soloff. “I make my own costumes.
