Spooktacular Lunch

Staff Senate Spooktacular Lunch

Come join the Staff Senate for a Spooktacular time

Let's get spooky, Bearkats!

Staff Senate invites you to join the annual Spooktacular celebration for lunch!

Tuesday, October 31
11 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Outdoors on the Sam Houston Memorial Museum grounds.

Join your colleagues for scary good food and compete for a chance to win prizes for the most spooktacular individual costume and group costume. There will also be a photo booth on-site to capture all of the fun and for you to snap a social media-worthy picture! We even conjured up a way for you to participate if you can't attend in person. Donations of nonperishable food items to benefit the SHSU Food Pantry are requested (not required) upon entrance. See the Food Pantry Wish List.
