Getting Involved

Volunteers for setup help transform the 4th floor of the library and the Student Union Ballroom into creepy spaces and volunteers for teardown help change it back.

Hours needed:

Setup: 9:00AM - 7:00PM

Teardown: 11:00PM - 1:00AM

 

Common questions:

If I want to help with setup do I have to be there for the whole time?

Nope! Volunteers helping with setup are welcome to work as many hours as they would like and come and go as they need.

 

Can I do more than one job?

Certainly! Many people helping with Fall Fright Night have multiple roles.

 

Can I bring a friend?

Yes! It's always more fun to help a friend with you when you're volunteering, just encourage to them to fill out the interest form or add as a comment on yours.

Guides lead groups through the haunted house but don't have an active role in scaring. Scarers are placed throughout the haunted house and costumed to match the scene that they're in.

 

Common questions:

What should I wear?

We ask that you come dressed in dark clothes that you don't mind getting dirty, we'll provide the costumes, makeup, and props

 

Can I bring a friend?

Yes, but we ask that they fill out the interest form in advance or that you make a note of it in the comments field. While we try to group friends together, sometimes this isn't possible when working with a limited number of volunteers.

 

Can I do more than one job?

Yes, many people helping with Fall Fright Night have multiple roles.

 

When should I arrive?

We ask that actors show up at 5:00PM for makeup, costuming, and orientation and plan on staying until 11:30PM.

Makeup is an essential part of creating creepy characters for Fall Fright Night.

 

Common questions:

Do I need to have makeup experience?

While experience is a plus, no experience is necessary.

 

Do I need to bring my own makeup and tools?

No, we'll supply all the makeup, blood, and tools needed.

 

What time should I arrive?

Makeup volunteers should arrive at 4:45PM for a brief orientation and plan on staying until 7:00PM

 

Can I do more than one job?

Certainly! Many people helping with Fall Fright Night have multiple roles.

The planning committee helps come up with the theme, scenes, and run the event. The committee meets frequently through the months of September and October.
