Do you remember when Mason Hall had all of those bats? Well, I’d like to think that the bats were just helping prepare Mason Hall for this year’s Haunted Mason.
Haunted Mason is an event where the Mu Iota chapter of Kappa Kappa Psi (KKPsi) transforms Mason Hall into a haunted house.
This year’s theme is based on the popular television show “American Horror Story” and Haunted Mason is going to be an all-out freak show.
Brooke Blair, KKPsi Treasurer, says, “The funny thing about the theme for this year is that no one on the committee for the event has ever seen an episode of American Horror Story. As we pulled together our ideas and started planning the event, the areas in Haunted Mason started lining up with the previous season of American Horror Story.”
This event will be happening on October 29th from 7:30 – 11:30pm. Tickets are being sold during the week on the front porch of Mason Hall from 9am – 3pm for three dollars.
If there isn’t time in the schedule to go by Mason during the week, tickets will be five dollars at the door on the night of the event.
All of the proceeds from the event will go towards the purchase of a new 20-J – a concert tuba that helps create the unique sound of the Marching Southerners.
According to KKPsi’s Vice President of Service, Jesse Stevens, “The Conn 20-J tuba that we use is no longer in production so the band is constantly on the lookout for those horns being sold online.”
All of the members are looking forward to this event. They hope that there will be a huge turnout for it, but they also know that not everyone is in to haunted houses.
Fraternity member Alana Ivey says, “I cannot handle intense haunted houses, but Haunted Mason is the perfect amount of scary for me.”
So why should the JSU family support this group and attend the event?
KKPsi member Josh McEntire thinks that you should come because, “Haunted Mason is something that KKPsi really puts an effort into doing well. We are not going to simply jump out at you and scream the entire time, hoping to surprise you.”
He continues, “We look at the different aspects of what people fear, and try to include it all in the different areas of Mason. Some people are scared of what they cannot see, others have fears of clowns or characters from tales, and others are scared of what is chasing after them. When looking at this, we want to make sure that everyone feels they got their money’s worth.”
