Health and Fitness Center Gets Spooky

A version of this story appeared in The Rotunda (archive)

On Thursday, the 29th, Longwood’s Health and Fitness Center will host a haunted house event, with a theme taken from the TV series American Horror Story, and will have several rooms based on scenes from the show. The actual haunted house will be in the powerlifting room in the front hallway.

There will be a costume contest, which you can join at any time. You can enter into the drawing and have your picture taken. If you take second, third, or fourth place, the Health and Fitness Center will email you the day after. The second and third place prizes have already been decided on, but the first place winner will get to choose which prize they want out of numerous choices available.

In order to keep you entertained while you wait in line, there will be several games you can play while you wait. For the three point shooting contest, attendees will have a limited amount of time to take a shot on each basketball hoop, and can find out if they won later. The prize for winning will be a free future gym registration. There will also be corn hole games and piñatas to keep people occupied. Longwood’s student-run radio station, WMLU, will also be providing the music for the event.

RCL trunk lift is the Office of Residential and Commuter Life’s trunk or treat event, which the Health and Fitness Center is promoting. It will be at 7:00 p.m., before the haunted house opens, and you can sign up to be one of ten car (or truck) owners, or come and vote on which one you think is the best.

As for guidelines for the costume contest, there is nothing specific other than it has to comply with the school dress code.

The haunted house will be open from 8:00 p.m. until 11:00 p.m.
