Texas Wesleyan’s Student Life hosted Stellaween at Stella Russell Hall on Thursday.
The free annual event transforms Stella Russell’s halls and bathrooms into a three-story haunted house that includes characters from scary movies like Carrie and Scream, clowns, zombies, and people pretending to be corpses.
Freshman business major Brooks Wallace said this was his first Stellaween.
“I didn’t expect it to be that scary,” Wallace said.
Wallace said he wished the haunted house would have taken more time to go through.
“I wish they would’ve started the haunted house in the basement for a scarier and timelier effect,” Wallace said.
Senior liberal studies major Eric Stubbs was attending Stellaween for the second time.
“I kind of knew what to expect, but it’s a great way to support Student Life and bring the student community together,” Stubbs said. “Stellaween is something accessible to all students and it’s a way to celebrate Halloween without having to pay.”
Senior liberal studies major Dion Rogers said last year’s Stellaween was better than this year due to the lack of pop-out moments in the house.
“I wish there would’ve been more people jumping out and popping out of nowhere to really get us all frightened,” Rogers said.
But Rogers said he still appreciates the detail and hard work that went into the event.
“Student Life always does a great job, and Stellaween is a way to be able to up our campus life and community,” Rogers said.
