Forget the ghosts and goblins: There’s already plenty of scary stuff out there this year! That’s why, this Halloween, the College of Charleston is making sure students stay safe and healthy with a weekend of fun festivities without the fright.

“We want our students to stay safe and healthy as our city and state work to limit the spread of COVID-19,” said President Andrew T. Hsu in an email reminding all Cougars to think first – about their costumes, their personal safety and about the health of the community at large – when celebrating Halloween this year. “We want everyone to have a fun and safe Halloween and for our entire campus community to continue to be proud of the way that our students behave and represent themselves and our university.”

The College has a wide range of events – from contests to drive-ins – planned for Friday, Oct. 30, and Saturday, Oct. 31. A highlight of the weekend will certainly be “Halloween Yoga with President Hsu” in the Cistern Yard at 5 p.m. on Friday. The “gentle Yinyasa” style class will feature President Hsu and will include the Hsu Pose. Space is limited, and registration is now full. A full list of activities is below.

“Our goal is for all students who participate in events to have a happy, fun and safe Halloween,” says Christine Workman, director of student life. “This time of year is always a lot of fun, and the College has plenty of great activities planned to help students stay safe and healthy without missing out on a fun Halloween experience.”
