As the scariest day of the year approaches, students are managing to have some Halloween fun—despite the pandemic.

Several houses are treating their members to tours of the Hanover-owned Dartmouth Cemetery, located behind the Class of 1953 Commons. Resident expert Ilana Grallert, a processing specialist at Dartmouth Library’s Rauner Special Collections Library, is leading the tour groups, which are limited in size to meet the College’s COVID-19-related guidelines. Also planned are a Halloween hunt for candy-filled toys; pumpkin decorating; a virtual mystery movie night; and the chance to be scared silly during a screening of classic horror films.
