Get Ready for the OPSU Dorm of Doom

By Danae Moore on 10/22/2013 Goodwell, Okla. — If you are looking for a good Halloween thrill, the OPSU Dorm of Doom may just be the perfect fit!

The Dorm of Doom is an annual haunted house hosted by the Images Art Club and OPSU Student Senate. All ages are invited to attend, but be prepared because this spook house is not for the weak of heart. Images Art Club began hosting the Dorm of Doom in the Fall of 1998, and they haven't missed a year since. Currently, the event is held in Muller Hall on the campus of OPSU. Those attending can expect three floors of scariness!

Plenty of hard work goes in to making this event a success. Students and volunteers began preparations for the haunted house when school started in August and will continue up until the night it opens. Each evening the Dorm of Doom is open, a staff of around 60 people will work including OPSU Art students and faculty as well as volunteers.

The Dorm of Doom will be open Oct. 24-26 and again on Oct. 28-31 nightly from 8 p.m. until midnight. Regular admission is $10. Oct. 24 is school spirit night and admission is $5 for those wearing their school colors. OPSU students may receive one night of free admission by picking up a ticket from the Art Department in Hesper Hall.

Dorm of Doom Committee Chairman, Josh Hogge, is participating in the Dorm of Doom for the fifth year. Hogge encourages everyone to participate whether helping with the preparations, serving as a tour guide or attending.

Hogge said, "I am all about everyone having a good time."
