Utah State is known as the host for one of the craziest dances of Northern Utah called The Howl. This Halloween dance is sponsored by the Utah State Student Association. They expect at least 6,000 people to show up this year. The theme for this year is, “Nightmare on Aggie Boulevard.” Some activities scheduled for the night include dancing, airbrush tattoos, a photo booth and oxygen bars distributed. The USUSA Activities Director, Jacob Scott, said, “”The USUSA Programming Board is so excited for the Howl 2014. We have been planning this event for six months and cannot wait for the students and visitors to experience it. You will not want to miss out on Utah’s biggest Halloween party.”
University police are ready for any situation to occur. Last year 23 officers from USU, Logan City and North Park were working the event. Steve Milne, USU police captain said, “The majority of our arrests are non-students – people that are not from the area here. For the most part, I think students behave themselves. It’s the people that come from out of town – they’re the ones that cause the fight and crash the place and things like that.”
According to the USU website, tickets are $10 in advance or $15 the day of with student ID. For non-USU students it is $25 in advance and $30 the day of. Everyone needs to be 18 years and older and needs to show ID at the door. Utah State is expecting a huge crowd and would love to have college students from all over Utah come and witness the legendary costume party of the Wasatch Front.
