Although Lafayette students are too old to go trick-or-treating this Halloween weekend, they will still have a reason to don their most creative costume.

Murder Mayhem Masquerade, a Halloween party with a twist, is being held 10 p.m. Friday until 2 a.m. at the Farinon Snack Bar. The first hour of the event will be presented as a murder mystery game, with students playing the role of detective. The rest of the night will consist of music, refreshments, and prizes.

The murder mystery will be performed by the coordinators of the David A. Portlock Black Cultural Center and members of the Association of Black Collegians, and prizes will be given away to the detective of the night, for the student who solves the mystery, as well as the student with the best costume.

The event is co-sponsored by Brothers of Lafayette, Association of Black Collegians, the NIA women’s group, and the Office of Intercultural Development.

“The plan was to have a party, but to do it outside of the normal expectations of a party,” says Jadrien Ellison ’01, intercultural development coordinator. “There’s been some buzz around campus and I hope that energy shows up on Friday.”

In another Halloween-related event, the Alpha Gamma Delta sorority invited area children for a night of trick-or-treating and touring haunted houses on campus yesterday.

Registration started 7 p.m. at the Farinon Center Atrium, with a $2 donation per child requested to benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund. About a dozen stops were included in the event, which lasted until 10 p.m.
