Boo Bash!

by: Marketta Davis

ENMU held various activities across campus this Halloween season to get students and faculty in the spirit of costuming and trick-or-treating.  There were arts and crafts, decoration assemblies, Halloween-themed foods and potlucks, and dances.

The ASAB held their annual Halloween Boo Bash last Thursday, Oct. 27 in the CUB Ballroom.  The theme for this year’s party was Harry Potter, complete with the various movie characters, glowing wands, and a repeating projection of the box office hit Harry Potter movie series.  Students, faculty, and staff who participated in the event were welcomed to “Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry” (the CUB) in the “Hogwarts Castle Great Hall” (the Ballroom) with Halloween decorated tables, balloons, snacks, and a DJ.

ENMU sophomore and ASAB Music Coordinator Timothy McCoy headed the Boo Bash committee this year.  He credited his and his committee’s choice in themes to their being such avid Harry Potter fans.  McCoy decided to coordinate the Halloween party because he wanted to make it fun, memorable, and different.  “It’s one of the biggest events during the fall semester for ASAB,” he said.  He and most of the active members of the campus organization were dressed as different variations of the chief movie character Harry Potter.

Other familiar Halloween characters in attendance at the party included various ghosts, ghouls, goblins, and witches.  There were also fairies, brides, dolls, and puppets.  Even Mario from Mario Brothers made an appearance.  ENMU freshman Caroline Shaw from China attended Boo Bash for the first time with her friends and was excited to dress up for the occasion.  When asked why she chose to dress as Mario she said, “It [was] so simple!”

ENMU junior and 2011 Homecoming King Michael Neurauter’s costume included a long silk-like cape, studded brooch, wand, and a nametag that read “Slytherin’ Student.”  Neurauter also came with friends and was very enthusiastic about one particular element of the party.  “I can’t wait to dance!” he said.

Alongside the decorations, costumes, and snacks, the Boo Bash also included a local DJ to complete the themed Halloween party.  The music ranged from Hip-Hop to Country and hit every genre in between.  Most students enjoyed the variety of music and lined-danced to Cupid’s “Cupid Shuffle”, Cali Swag District’s “Teach Me How to Dougie”, and V.I.C.’s “Wobble”.  Another student favorite included LMFAO’s “Party Rock Anthem” and two students dressed up as Party Rock robots entertained the crowd with a robot dance-off.

The party was a success for the ASAB and all those involved in preparing for the event.  Students enjoyed all aspects of the dance from the music and food.
