Trick-or-treating may be strictly reserved for kids under the age of 12, but if anybody gets into Halloween it's college students. So much so that we extend it over a five day period, as celebrations began last Thursday night and continued until last night. So while the days of Dots, stale Tootsie Rolls, sorting through candy and making a secret stash in your pillow case are over, the Halloween spirit is still alive and well. Here's a look at how I spent this past weekend.

In honor of our shared symbol, the owl, Kappa and Chi-O unite every year for a Halloween party cleverly called Owloween. Here's me as Kate Middleton, Jenna the biker babe, Julie the fairy, and Kate as Strawberry Shortcake before heading downtown to kick off the weekend.

My date was a fellow Houstonian and now a Fiji at Texas--Charlie. He, of course, was Prince William to coordinate with my Kate costume. I must say, however, that he has a striking resemblance to Harry.

Cami and her date went as the SNL cheerleaders.

I wasn't the only one who looked to recent pop culture for a costume idea. Caroline, otherwise known as C. Wall, also went as Miss Middleton. I was jealous of her natural brunette hair color to complete her costume.

I finished the night at Fiji at their Halloween party. Merl was a cat, getting the first wear out of her fur vest!

Here is most of our room for next year spending a Friday night downtown at Taverna--a delicious Italian restaurant.

It was parent's weekend, and even though my parents couldn't make it up, Kate's family kindly adopted me for the weekend.

Here are P and Eli with their cute moms. We all decided on a mother daughter trip to New Orleans at some point in the next four years, and I can barely wait! I spent Saturday at our annual fall fundraiser--Kappa Cookout celebrating our football victory and becoming that much closer to reaching our goal of building a school in Uganda for Building Tomorrow! (Check out our fundraising page here.) I attended yet another party that night sans costume out of sheer laziness. Needless to say, by the time real Halloween came around, my spirit was running low, so I spent last night detoxing with Merly Whirly.

Good thing I had these cuties to cover for me!
