As the leaves turn and the nights grow darker we enter Spooky Season here on UNC’s Campus. I’m here to share some fun Halloween secrets that will bring all the scares while staying safe and respecting COVID regulations. It is no secret us Bears have always found a way to get involved and celebrate Halloween here in Greeley, but this year celebrations will be looking a little different, I’m here to let you know about the activities on and off campus that will provide students with the ultimate spooky Halloween.

Virtual Pumpkin Carving Contest
On campus, UNC is hosting an online Virtual Pumpkin Carving Contest. What better way to get in the Halloween spirit than decorating and carving your very own pumpkin. Grab your roommates or a friend and find out who can carve the best creation. This event allows you to celebrate while practicing social distancing in groups less than 6, while wearing a mask! Upload a picture of your creation and submit to the UNC Undergrad Community on any one of their Pumpkin Carving Contest posts. UNC pumpkin carving stencils are also available so you can show off your school spirit!

Zombie Zumba
Campus Rec Fitness and Wellness are partnering with the University Program Council to bring you a night of virtual Zombie Zumba. Costumes are encouraged, so be sure to remember to wear your mask Thursday, October 29 from 7:30-8:30 p.m. (MDT). Sign ups are open for different tiered classes so what are you waiting for? Register for a Zoom Class.

Netflix and Hulu
Another great way to get into the Halloween spirit it to host a virtual watch party with your friends. Netflix and Hulu have uploaded Halloween related TV shows and movies just in time to get your spook on.

Halloween Recipes
With spooky movies and scary pumpkins also comes yummy treats! Here are some fun and easy recipes for you to try this Halloween to stay involved. 23 Easy Haunting Halloween Dessert Recipes.
