November 1,1995 o Campus News Trick or Treat at Haunted Hoe-Down by Beth Moms The “Haunted Hoe-Down” spon sored by MEA wasn’t quite enough to wake the dead, according to several freshmen who attended the dance on Thursday, Oct. 26, even though the turn out was slightly over 100. When asked about the dance, one freshman (who requested to remain anonymous) said, “If you like dancing with your roommate it’s a fun place to be.” Jessica Ezzell, a senior, held a slightly different opinion. She said that she was “having a great time” and she was “very impressed with the organization, decorations and the effort most members made to dress up.” Dorothy Livsay and Katie “Bug” Outten were the two co-chairs in charge of organizing the “Haunted Hoe-Down.” According to the co chairs, MEA invited fraternities and dorms from NCSU, UNC and Duke in an attempt to increase the ratio of males to females at the on-campus event. Livsay felt that the turnout in general was “good for a world se ries night.” Scott Russell, a second year stu dent at Southeast Baptist Seminary, was among the small group of men who showed up for the dance. Russel seemed impressed with his first Meredith event even though he said it “definitely needed more guys” and it “took [him] a while to get used to it.” Livsay and Outten began prepar ing four weeks ago. With the help of 20 MEA members and Cheryl Jenkins, MEA advisor, the gym was decorated Have a fun and safe time with Cornhuskin' and Good Luck to all classes! From the Herald Staff with orange, black and white bal loons and streamers. DJ Ronnie Will iams cranked out a variety of tunes while bubbles galore whizzed about the gym. A strobe light was placed in the back of the gym—creating a psy chedelic aura as it reflected off of the Halloween costumes worn. In an attempt to lure more party- goers MEA only charged $1 admis sion and awarded treats every half- hour. The door prizes included CDs, 1994 White Iris Ball T-shirts, mem berships to the Longbranch, $23 gift certificate to the Cutting Edge, vari ous food gift certificates, and tickets to the 1995 White Iris Ball. While some students came to the “Hoe-Down” expecting to see men, the majority who attended shared the feeling that one student expressed when she said she had “a lot of fun with her friends.” Meredith students have fun with friends at the Haunted Ho- Down.
