Photo gallery Scenes from a spooky Halloween night
On a brisk Halloween night, members of the UW–Madison community got out to celebrate the spookiness across campus. On Picnic Point, students gathered around a bonfire to tell spooky stories, in an event hosted by the Wisconsin Union Directorate Publications Committee. And continuing a long-standing tradition, treats were handed out at Olin House by Chancellor Jennifer Mnookin, Bucky Badger and members of the UW Spirit Squad.
