By Mary Moreno |Staff Writer| Over 1600 people shook their booties on Oct. 25 at the third annual "Howl at the Moon" hosted by the San Manuel Student Union (SMSU) Program Board. Those in attendance were able to rub elbows with the likes of Batman, the Power Ranger and various sexy versions of Dorothy Gale from Kansas. At 10 pm the dance floor was a barren land with many succumbing to the wallflower effect. Once the fashionably late crowd arrived everyone was taken in by DJ SkyHigh's beats like the quintessential dance movie CSUSB students brought it.

By Maria Perry |Staff Writer| It’s Halloween, the full moon is out, the ghouls are dancing and you’re stressing out. Kids up and down the block seem to be in disguise as cats, mice, ghosts, and all sorts of ghastly critters. So what’s the dilemma?

By Marissa Mooney |Asst. A&E Editor| Halloween is just around the corner and now that midterms are over, students are in search for the perfect costume. On a college student budget, costumes can be expensive for something being worn only once a year. Generic costumes can run as much as $30 to $90 at stores like Target and seasonal Halloween shops. “It can be expensive to buy a costume from a Halloween store.
