CEDAR HILL, Texas - Halloween is just around the corner and not only are the ghost, ghouls, and goblins on the prowl but the knights are ready to petrify and terrorize the public. Every year Northwood University’s Texas campus hosts Haunted Forest.
On Tuesday October 9, the knights had dinner at the softball field and signed up for different characters for Haunted Forest.
Wally Trejo, junior entertainment sports management major, stated, “I’m very excited because this is my favorite Northwood tradition.”
The list for the different scare areas in the haunted forest filled up quickly, from make-up artist to the walking dead, absolutely everyone wanted to participate. “I’m ready for my classmates to scare me”, said Lisa Nguyen, junior international business major.
The knights are very eager for Haunted Forest this year. Abby Babbitt, director of Leadership and Character Development stated, “Haunted Forest is always a success but this year with all of the students participating, I’m excited that it’s not only going to be a success but fun.”
