Baldwin Wallace Arts Haus Hosts Halloween Event

Baldwin Wallace University’s Arts Haus presented the Halloween-themed “Are You Afraid of the Dark Roast?” Saturday, Oct. 26 at 372 Front Street.
“Are You Afraid of the Dark Roast?” had many Halloween activities such as fortune telling, palm reading, scary story-telling and crafts.
Students were encouraged to come in costumes, and house members had prepared Halloween snacks for participants. Admission to the event was $3.
Seniors Alli St. John, Damon Condon and Luke Brett currently live in the Arts Haus, as well as Juniors Nicholas Baldasare, Grace McConnell and Nicole Campeotto. The Arts Haus is one of six Student-Directed Learning Center Community (SDLC) houses on campus.
The purpose of having SDLC houses is to create a themed educational purpose and host regular events open to all students to further this purpose. The Arts Haus is a Fine Arts Community house that hosts “Jams n’ Java” events throughout the school year.
“Jams n’ Java” is typically held in the basement of the Arts Haus and has a coffee house setting. At these events, BW students are encouraged to share their creative talents in the forms of poetry reading, singing, dancing, comedy and other types of art. The “Are You Afraid of the Dark Roast?” event incorporated a “Jams n’ Java” portion of the evening at 9 p.m.
For the most recent “Are You Afraid of the Dark Roast?” event, The Arts Haus students decided to incorporate a “Jams n’ Java” component to the evening.  As the event began at 3 p.m. on Saturday and went through 1 a.m. Sunday morning, half of the night was dedicated to the activities while the other half was dedicated to the opportunity for the students to share their talents.
“Are You Afraid of the Dark Roast?” was a successful event, as evidenced by the wide variety of entertainment during the “Jams n’ Java” portion of the night and the large number of BW student attendees.
