Starting off on Monday, Fiji is hosting its annual Halloween party from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. Find a cute or terrifying costume and show up to Fiji ready to have a good time. Tickets are going to be sold for $3 before the event during Jewell Time or $5 at the door.
Tuesday is advising day which means no classes. But don’t worry, there’s still a bunch of things to do. Zeta Tau Alpha is having a fundraiser at Liberty Nutrition all day, so go get some nutrition in shake form.
