It’s scary how quickly Halloween snuck up this semester. Between welcome week activities, homecoming, midterms and a plethora of other events at Youngstown State University, October has flown by faster than leaves on the trees surrounding campus.
Some YSU students might be struggling to find a last-minute costume for a Halloween party this weekend, or they perhaps want to impress trick-or-treaters with a knock-out ensemble.
Luckily, it doesn’t have to cost much to achieve a quality costume for Halloween. A few YSU students helped The Jambar compile this list of last-minute Halloween costumes that are already in your closet.
