Bobcats Celebrate Spooky Season
B ack at it again, nursing students fought through frights, terrors and fears to provide their utmost care to simulated patients.
Trick-or-Treatment, a now annual event for nursing students, aims to be a platform for students to apply their skills in a safe and fun environment. Like escape rooms, the panicked participants navigated perilous puzzles to address patient concerns and remedy their requirements. They had to navigate clues and understand medical knowledge enough to make sure their patients survived.
When their journey came to a close, students earned completion certificates—and a little more proficiency in their pocket.
There has been something for everyone this spooky season at GCSU. The Wellness and Recreation Center hosted Thunder's first ever Haunted Trail on October 30 at the intramural fields. After the thrills, chills and jump scares, Haunted Trail survivors calmed their nerves with hot chocolate and s'mores.
The Old Governor's Mansion hosted "Death After Dark" tours this past weekend, with costumed docents leading guests through the dimly lit corridors of the mansion. Tour guests learned about the history of 19th Century funeral and mourning traditions.
And the Halloween fun is still going. Tonight at 7:30 p.m., the GCSU Pride Alliance and Latino Student Association are turning The Hub into the Haunted Hub for a joint meeting - costumes welcome!
However you choose to celebrate, Thunder wishes every Bobcat a safe and happy Halloween!
