Ole Miss Guyton Haunted House Provides Free Halloween Family Fun

unnamed-7

The Ole Miss School of Education and Teachers of Tomorrow is putting on their annual family friendly haunted house on Friday, October 30 from six to eight p.m.

The event is free and will be located on the Ole Miss campus, Guyton Hall, 49 Rebel Drive. This will be the sixth year for the Education department to put on this event.

Ave Mayeux, senior Elementary Education major, and Public Relations chair for Teachers of Tomorrow, said that this year they are featuring a candy table where students can decorate their treat bags and get some candy.

“We will have a table with snacks and a popcorn machine. There will be a photo booth where the kids can use props to create a souvenir picture, and there will be a “haunted hallway” for kids to walk through (if they choose.) Though it’s called the haunted hallway, it’s geared towards younger kids so it’s not TOO spooky,” Mayeux said.

There isn’t an age limit on who can come and enjoy the haunted house. Toddler age through middle school students will be able to enjoy the fun. “It’s really a family friendly environment where all ages can have good, clean fun and their parent’s don’t have to worry!” Mayeux said.

Classrooms in Guyton will be transformed into game rooms and a reading room where children can sit and have Halloween stories read to them. There will also be a “spooky science room” where students can “feel body parts” like boiled spaghetti, peeled grapes, etc. to be different body parts and organs. Also, they will be demonstrating some science experiments as well.

“Most of us are planning on becoming teachers or coaches, and this is just a fun way that we can reach out and give back to the community and kids in the community that have been so welcoming to us,” Mayeux said.

The event is sponsored by Ole Miss School of Education and Teachers of Tomorrow (TOT), which is a student organization for future educators under the Mississippi Association of Educators (MAE.)

“Nothing will be inappropriate or too scary-We try to include some educational games and elements so it can not only be fun, but a fun learning experience as well! And of course, there is a LOT of candy and cool prizes for the kids!” Mayeux said.

“We just really want to stress that we want kids and families to be able to get dressed up and come out the Friday before Halloween and be able to have a good time in a safe environment… and get a lot of candy, of course!”
