Sigma Alpha Epsilon holds haunted house
The Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity will host a haunted house and a canned food drive Thursday at 2034 G St. About 200 pre-schoolers are invited from Steven Elementary School to the event from 10-11:30 a.m. At noon, the house will be open to the campus
The fraternity will use three of the four floors of the house for different haunted house scenes.
“We use black garbage bags for the first and second floors to cover the walls. There are different areas where people jump out at you,” said senior John Shannon, Sigma Alpha Epsilon chaplain.
The elementary school students will not be required to pay admission. At noon, GW students will have to bring a can of food to get in.
Two years ago, fraternity members received 600 cans for the drive. Last year, they received between 300 and 400 cans.
