The Armenian Student Organization has had a busy month filled with many fun and exciting new activities. To celebrate Halloween, ASO organized a trip to Hobbs Grove, a popular Halloween haunted corn-maze. When they weren’t screaming from fright, the members were bonding with each other over the terrifying attractions.

The experience was ex-hilarating and gave the members a fun way to get into the Halloween spirit.

Continuing the Halloween festivities, ASO also organized a scary-fun costume party. It was filled with spooky decorations and delicious food. All of those in attendance wore a variety of costumes and had a blast playing games. The Executive organized a game similar to “Heads Up,” where members had to guess the Halloween character that was written on the card held above their heads.

Everyone was talking and laughing, having the time of their life. The members spent the evening making memories that will last a life-time.

ASO welcomed in November and members voted to hold a “Friendsgiving” to celebrate Thanksgiving.

The ASO Executive members reached out to ASO members and other students in order to encourage participation.

The dinner was a potluck, with a wide variety of food items, making for an amazing dinner. The night was all about being thankful for having great friendships and reflecting about all that we are blessed with on a day-to-day basis.

On December 15, ASO will hold their annual Christmas Party. There will be food, great music, dancing, a photo booth, a raffle, and a silent auction. ASO is planning for an unforgettable night for everyone. The tickets are $25.00 and include a free raffle ticket.

The Executive encourages all members to attend so that the club can have one final celebration for the end of the semester full of hard work and dedication.

ASO enjoyed a “Friendsgiving” meal on Tuesday, November 21 at the Ekmekchyan family home. This was the first time that ASO had planned such an event, which everyone enjoyed.
