Intervarsity Halloween fun

Darlene Mangrum, Reporter


If you are trying to find something fun to do for Halloween, you can always join the party in the Fireside Room hosted by Intervarsity.

Intervarsity is a Christian based club that hosts prayer meetings and Bible studies on campus all semester long. The president of the club, Patrina Watt, is inviting Bakersfield College faculty and students to an ‘Open Mic-Talent Night’ in the Fireside Room on Thursday Oct. 30, at 7-8:30 pm.

There will be free food, a talent show, a raffle (.50 cent raffle tickets), and a costume contest. Please no full-faced masks allowed (campus security issue). Please no inappropriate costumes (keep it PG). Costumes are encouraged but not required and there will be prizes for various costume categories. Prizes have not been decided yet, but they will be festive and related to the Oct. holiday.

According to Watt “This is an opportunity to engage students in a friendly, open, safe, and fun environment on campus to celebrate the October holiday.”  Watt also said, “It is also a chance to interest students in our club, showing them that being a Christian does not mean that you have to be boring or unable to hang out with friends of all faiths and backgrounds.”

Watt also mentioned, “If anyone is interested, we are in need of performers who will share their talents through singing, playing an instrument, giving a speech, acting out a short skit, reading poetry, dancing, or whatever other talent the student or faculty wants to gift the audience with.”

Performance spots are 5-10 minutes long and need to be reserved by Oct. 23. If anyone is interested in performing they can contact club president, Patrina Watt at 661-440-0901 or [email protected], or contact Jill Vande Zande at 231-855-2808 or [email protected]
