From our monumental switch to the Big Ten Conference, to the creation of new residence halls and academic buildings; The University of Maryland has developed a university that caters more towards the student population. On October 11th, Student Entertainment Events (or SEE for short) changed the game for University of Maryland student activities by announcing that Kevin Hart was scheduled to perform at Cole Field House on November 1st.
On Saturday November 1st, comedian Kevin Hart and actor Josh Gad made an appearance at the University of Maryland for a pre-screening of their new movie “The Wedding Ringer.”
In 2011, director Paul Feig brought us hilarious wedding rom-com “Bridesmaids,” but in January 2015, director/writer Jeremy Garelick brings us “The Wedding Ringer,” which could be everyone’s new favorite wedding movie of all time.
Screams from Hornbake Plaza could be heard all over campus on the eve of Halloween. On any other night, I’d be concerned, but that night the screams were anticipated thanks to SEE’s haunted house.
Many students journeyed to the haunted house to be scared by SEE’s team of monsters. From clowns to zombies to dead babies, the Hornbake Haunted House had almost every scary creature imaginable.
One student, Michaela Taylor definitely had a frightful, yet fun experience…”My favorite part of the haunted house was when the chainsaw guy jumped out at me and I almost crapped my pants. Good times.”
Scary surprises lurked behind every corner, making the trip through the haunted house even more exciting. By the end, you couldn’t help but look over your shoulder to see if there was a creature creeping behind you.
SEE’s spooky attraction was a great alternative to other Halloween festivities in the area, such as haunted forests and woods. Though the house was small in size, the show inside gave a huge scare to all that entered. As a free activity, it was something no struggling college student could easily turn down.

Halloween isn’t just for little kids anymore, thanks to a special promotion at Chipotle.
Getting into the Halloween spirit is easier for teens and adults with discounted meals at Chipotle as an incentive. With a special promotion offering three dollar “Booritos,” Chipotle merely requires customers to wear costumes to the store from 5 p.m. to close. The special deal began in 2008 and originally offered a free burrito only to customers dressed as Chipotle burritos. As the price of meat increased, the price of the burrito rose, but the criteria for the discount became just to wear any costume.
One million dollars of the proceeds for the night go to Chipotle Cultivate Foundation, a non-profit organization focused on food health and sustainability. Home to one of the highest grossing Chipotle restaurants in the country, College Park brought out residents as well as UMD students to create a long line down the sidewalk looking for discounted meals. There were many interesting costumes, check out some pictures!
