Spooktacular Breakfast


Come join the Staff Senate for a Spooktacular time

Let's get spooky, Bearkats!

Staff Senate is hosting the annual Spooktacular Breakfast on Friday, October 29, from 8:30 – 10:30 a.m. in the Lowman Student Center White Ballroom.

Join your colleagues for scary good tacos complete with all the fixin's, and compete for a chance to win multiple prizes for the most spooktacular individual pumpkin and costume and group costume. That's right; you can enter all three categories if you dare. There will also be a photo booth on-site to capture all of the fun and for you to snap a social media worthy picture!  We even conjured up a way for you to participate if you can't attend in person.

Register in-person by 9:30 a.m. on the day of the event or virtually by emailing staffsenate@shsu.edu between 8-9 a.m. Although you may enter each category, you may only enter the contests in-person or virtually.

Rules and registration information below. Please contact Staff Senate at staffsenate@shsu.edu if you have any questions. 

We can't wait to see you!


Donations of nonperishable food items to benefit the SHSU Food Pantry are requested (not required) upon entrance.
