The traffic is a little heavier around Clarksville these days. More cars are heading down College Street, trying to find that rare parking spot within the Austin Peay State University campus. Classes are back in session at the University, and with close to a thousand more students attending this year, the number of people on the roads and walking the sidewalks will definitely be noticeable.
“But that’s a good problem to have,” Kenny Kennedy, Student Government Association president at APSU, said. “Parking is one of those good problems to have because it means you have a full campus.”And Kennedy said the SGA is working this year to keep more of those students on campus after normal class hours, thus providing both a financial stimulus and a work force resource for the entire Clarksville community.
G.H.O.S.T. hosted creepy thrills and a fun night full of treats without tricks. Austin Peay State University student organizations and departments opened the campus to the community to give parents, and children the chance to have a safe time while trick or treating. Students stood in the twilight hours of the fading October sun, dressed in various costumes with spectacular organizational displays.
Some organizations such as the Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA), and Chi Epsilon Mu had costume themes. Those two groups chose vampires and pirates, respectively. Chi Epsilon Mu won the first place prize for their two-story pirate ship playhouse display, allowing members to man the tables, and the vessel in true ship-man teamwork.
G.H.O.S.T., a long-stranding tradition at Austin Peay State University, stands for Greater Halloween Options for Safe Trick or Treating, and is presented annually by the SGA on the last Sunday before Halloween between the hours of 4:30 pm to 7:00 pm. «Read the rest of this article»
