The university community came together for food, music and fun at President Alice Gast’s house on Thursday evening, a Halloween celebration of school spirit that had the Asa Packer campus buzzing well into the night.
By the time the three-hour Halloween party drew to a close at 10 p.m., more than 1,030 graduate and undergraduate students had visited the president's house and consumed gallons of cider and hot chocolate and countless pounds of chicken fingers, popcorn, pretzels and candy. Distributed to students were 750 water bottles, 500 t-shirts, and 25 individual prizes. Students also snapped over 130 Polaroid photos throughout the night, and posted tweets and photos on social media using the hashtag #oneLehigh.
The president's home was decorated earlier in the day by 12 students from the Panhellenic Council. The party was staffed by 25 student volunteers, 10 staff volunteers and an additional six volunteers from Dining Services.
More than 1,000 students signed a banner reading only "#oneLehigh," which will be displayed on campus throughout the month of November and at the upcoming Lehigh/Lafayette game on Saturday, Nov. 23rd.
The students contributed more than 350 items of either canned goods or school supplies, which were donated to the Hispanic Center on South Side.
