The Mohawk Students Association (MSA) said goodbye to spooky month with its last party, B00 Bash, on Oct 26. Pumpkins After Dark and the Halloween Haunt at Canada’s Wonderland were the other Halloween events the MSA presented this month.
According to Montana Hunter, events coordinator at the MSA, more than 700 students enjoyed the MSA Halloween celebrations throughout October. The Events & Communities team brainstorms ideas based on what students have requested and what they enjoyed the previous year.
“Almost all of our events are free, and it makes students commit to coming and having a happy time with their classmates,” Hunter said. “Vanie Kaur is our events student lead and she has come up with some wonderful ideas that you’ve likely experienced at events already this year.”
MSA events, such as B00 Bash, are ideas that students bring to the association. After two discussion weeks, the MSA team meets to coordinate the budget, date, and capacity of the event.
“I know that last year a student and part-time worker brought the idea of the TV show Bridgeton Ball and after a month the idea was approved,” Vanie Kaur said. “I suggested goat yoga in August and they [the MSA] loved it. So we were able to make it possible for a small group of students.”
The MSA is always looking for different events throughout the year where all students feel welcome, and Halloween is one of the popular themes that students look forward to celebrating.
If students have any fun ideas for an event that they want to celebrate, they can visit the MSA front desk and talk to Montana Hunter or Tyler Howie.
