On October 15th, the Hun resident students had the chance to visit the Sleepy Hollow Haunted Acres as part of the weekend activities. Over 30 residents signed up for the trip organized by the Res Life office.
For 25$ per head, it is a fair price considering that you might be there for close to two hours. “Being there with friends is a good way to pass the time. Considering that there are only two attractions, the lines are very long”, says Sophia Zuberi ’24.
“It was very scary. Though I expected a less crowded place, I enjoyed it. I am not someone who gets easily scared, but I have to admit that I jumped in my friend’s arms on multiple occasions,” says Jayden Ngyuen ’22. It is a must-go for every fan of a good scare.
On another note, The Proctor Study Break has been going on since the beginning of this week to reward the student’s good work after the first quarter.
This Proctor Study Break has been happening for the past couple of years, but the current school year’s proctors have come up with ideas for the week’s food. This break is from 9:30 to 10:30 PM featuring cookies and milk, Pizza, Bubble tea, wings, or even Korean BBQ, says a proctor Oliver Zeman ’23.
Although the entire boarding community has been under a lot of pressure for the last few days due to the end of the quarter, these little events bring back a smile on the faces of many.
A boarder, Oscar Linden, thought of the current state of things surrounding the end of the first marking period. “It’s been a stressful week, but we have to come together as a boarding community and go through these tough times together to become stronger.”
