Halloween Events happening at UNF

Nathan Turoff, Features Editor

Spooky Season has arrived in full force this week, with Halloween just around the corner. A hallmark of the holiday is costumes, candy, and scaring people. Many students are attending UNF from far away, and may not be able to travel off-campus to celebrate. Thankfully, UNF is holding many events this week to celebrate the spooky season. Here are some of the events being held on-campus for all students to enjoy.

Teal Pumpkin Project

On Tuesday, Oct. 26, The UNF Dining Dietitian will be hosting the Teal Pumpkin Project outside of the Osprey Cafe from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. They will be providing teal pumpkins for students to decorate and craft. This fall festival is to raise awareness for food allergies and is open for all students.
