5 Affordable Ways to Have Fun In October

‘Tis the season of candy corn, caramel apples and cider. You may be in college, but you’re never too old to partake in October festivities. If you’re sick of doing the same thing every weekend, this is the month for you and your friends to switch it up with some of these festive fall activities.

1. Haunted houses or mazes are always fun because you get to see everyone out of their element and screaming for bloody life. Check out and find a haunted house, corn maze or haunted hayride near you. Be sure to get a decent sized group to go with you for this activity. It will make the experience exponentially more fun, and you can hide in the middle of the group when you are terrified.

2. Let’s not forget pumpkin patches. They’re a little more childlike, yes! But nonetheless, they bring about a lovely sense of nostalgia. Oftentimes, there’s a cider mill within walking distance of the pumpkin patch. Don’t miss out on the hauntingly delicious fresh cider and doughnut smell filling the air -- stop in for a treat!

3. Find a costume party and dress up. If you’re having trouble finding a costume, you can visit various costume retailers online and begin your search. For a DIY costume, look at what College Gloss suggests:

4. If you’re looking for something to do inside the dorm, rent a few good horror movies from Redbox or search through Netflix, order a pizza and call it a night.

5. The most traditional Halloween activity is pumpkin carving. Have each of your friends go out and purchase a small pumpkin and make a night of decorating them. You can buy a carving kit from your local drugstore.

Whether you chose to trick-or-treat or swing by the campus parties, be sure to have a blast this Halloween season.
