California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB) geared up for Halloween, as the third floor of the Business and Informational Technology (BIT) building was transformed from a hall of faculty offices to a spooky Halloween haunted hall on Oct. 28.
“We wanted to bring back the spirit and get students and faculty engaged,” said Cheri Rainwater, the Administrative Support Coordinator for the College of Business (COB).
The event’s name was inspired by the Interim Dean of the College of Business Maryou Shockley.
Rainwater noted because this is the first year back after the pandemic, the COB wanted to get students’ spirits up.
Planning a frightening event was a change of pace for Rainwater who has a background in event and wedding planning. She had help planning the event from student assistant Berenice Lemus.
Students were treated to a variety of sweets on the tables outside the faculty and staff offices lining the hall.
A popular selection was the donuts.
“This is so cool,” said communication design student Faye Mensah. “I love the fog. They really went all out.”
