CEN will be hosting the City Ghost Walk with the Providence Ghost Tour in Providence on Oct. 28 at 6:30 p.m.

It is almost time for Roger Williams University’s annual Wicked Week! Hosted by Campus Entertainment Network (CEN), prepare for a week of Halloween fun as the big holiday draws closer.

Unlike last year, this year’s events are all in-person. CEN has bigger and better things prepared for students than what they’ve seen in the past.

Starting on Tuesday, Oct. 26, Where’s the Fun? (WTF) is hosting the Monster Mash Potato Bar in the Global Heritage Hall (GHH) lobby. Make sure to stop by between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. for some yummy mashed potatoes on a cool autumn day.

On Wednesday, Oct. 27, CEN is hosting Donut Go Crazy! Donut Decorating & Pumpkin Painting. Stop by the GHH atrium again at 8 p.m. for all the free donuts you can eat while you paint some spooky pumpkins.

“We are very excited that there will be a number of events involving food, as last year had many limitations on what we could do with food,” said the Co-Chairs of the CEN Traditions Committee, Emily Williams and Megan Dosouto. “This year, we have a lot more options, and we know students love free food!”

On Thursday, Oct. 28, CEN is going big and hosting the City Ghost Walk in Providence, starting at 6:30 p.m. For this off-campus event, the organization will provide transportation to and from the city. Explore the hauntings of Prospect Terrace and try to catch ghost evidence of your own.

“We are super excited for the City Ghost Walk because we did not have the ability last year to do an off-campus getaway during Wicked Week,” Williams and Dosouto said.

On Friday, Oct. 29, WTF will host Speak to the Spirits with medium Rob Thompson in the Field House. Starting at 8 p.m., try to connect with the spirits that may be roaming the campus. You might get a response back.

The week will finish off with the annual Halloween Carnival taking place outside of the Field House at 4 p.m. Check out all the fun rides and games it has to offer!

“We hope that Wicked Week will help students become prepared and excited for Halloween, as well as become more involved in more campus activities,” the co-chairs said. “These events may even inspire students to become involved with CEN in the future.”

Students may come to as many events as they wish, and they can visit CEN’s table times in Commons to learn more information about Wicked Week on Tuesday, Oct. 26. They can also check Hawk Link as more information about these events become available.
