Reporter Turner St. Romain shows us a look into the Haunted House that was put on in the Turner Center
Last night Ole Miss Campus Recreation hosted the inaugural Terror in Turner Haunted House at the Turner Center.
The purpose of the event was to provide an alternative to the bars and other common college nightlife activities, along with tricks and treats with a health and wellness twist.
Erin Cromeans, assistant director for Wellness Education, spearheaded the project after a campus recreation event committee came up with the idea this summer.
“We definitely want to see it grow and expand and, maybe not only be the two rooms we’re using it in, but all of Turner moving forward,” Cromeans said.
Several campus and community members stood in line last night for their chance to enter the haunted house.
“We’re definitely interested continuing this every year,” Cromeans said.
Ole Miss Student Maggie Crouch said she was pleasantly surprised by the haunted house.
“I thought when I was standing in line it wasn’t going to be that bad because there were a bunch of younger kids in front of me, but once I got in there I realized that this was actually legit and it was honestly really scary,” she said.
While she isn’t a fan of scares, Crouch did say she would recommend Terror in Turner to friends in the future.
