The Lowman Student Center will be transformed during the 4th annual LSC Takeover on Wednesday.
“This event is where we take over the entire LSC from the ground floor up to the third floor,” Atraviya Thomas, director of marketing and public relations for the student organization Program Council, said. “We try to make each year a big attraction for students.”
This year’s takeover will include a haunted house, a Velcro wall, sumo wrestling, air brush tattoos and a showing of the movie the Final Destination 3 in 3D. Students will also have the opportunity to make their own music CD’s or to put themselves in a movie poster, which they can take home as a gift.
Program Council will also be replacing last year’s ice skating rink with a two-story outdoor laser tag game.
Sports, the Dean of Students Office, Multicultural and International Student Services and Student Activities are all co-sponsoring the Takeover, according to Thomas.
The event, which is set to last from 8 p.m. until midnight, is free to students, and Aramark is catering. An estimated 1,200 students will attend, Thomas said.
“It’s a great way to be around a whole bunch of your friends right before Halloween,” Thomas said. “It’s also a great way to get prepared for Halloween.”
