FHSU students celebrate Halloween by hosting haunted house for community

In honor of the Halloween season, three Fort Hays State University student organizations, Communication Club, Players Club and Tau Kappa Epsilon, are hosting a haunted house from Sunday, Oct. 26, through Thursday, Oct. 30, at 209 W. Fifth St. in Hays.

Thrills will last from 7-11 p.m. each night. The haunted house will also be open two extra hours on Wednesday from 5-7 p.m., for Kids Night.

Children age 12 and under and FHSU students with student ID will be admitted for $3 each. All others will be charged $5. On Sunday, designated Family Night, families will be admitted at a discounted rate.

"We plan for the spooks and thrills to be kid- and family-friendly on Sunday and from 5-7 p.m. on Wednesday," said Christina Davidson, Claflin senior and haunted house committee member, "but everyone is welcome to come whenever they can make it."

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to a local non-profit organization.

J.J. Wright, Hays senior and Communication Club president, said, "It's a unique opportunity we have to work with two other campus organizations to serve the community. We are anxious to play a reverse role and give others a chance to enjoy the haunted house experience."
