Halloween is approaching in only a few days, and you can feel the buzz in the halls of Whitman. October 31st marks a day of joy and Halloween festivities for most people — but November 1st scarily creeps around the corner.
“I was at a haunted house this weekend, but all I could think about was college applications,” one senior said. “That night I had a nightmare about my teacher not submitting their recommendation on time.”
In a poll conducted by the Rutabaga, students of all four grades were asked the scariest part of Halloween. Freshmen said clowns, sophomores said zombies, and juniors said bloody vampires: but seniors said “not getting into college”.
So, in lieu of these fears, seniors collectively decided to cancel Halloween: because there’s nothing scarier than an admissions decisions letter.
