It’s that time of year again when everyone carves their pumpkins and decorates their rooms with the dollar Target decorations. Pumpkin spice-flavored everything is everywhere! With decorations being in stores long before it even was October, you’ve been dreading Halloween for a while now.

Most of your friends are deciding when to go to Eastern State Penitentiary or what to be for Halloween, and here you’re stuck trying to figure out what you’ll do instead of Halloween.

There is never anything to do when you are the only friend who hates Halloween.  

What else is there to do in Philadelphia this October?

CampusPhilly’s OpenArts provides art and cultural venues for college students in Philadelphia.

In October there are a number of events happening for free. Yes, you heard that right,free! You don’t have to dig into your pockets for what’s left of your money to get in.

On the website there are dozens of events posted for the coming weeks. Some are not free but there is a discount for students. You know, on nights when you just want to get away from all the Halloween hub.

One of their largest and most popular events is College Night on November 3rd. The night kicks off at the Arden Theatre on N. 2nd Street at 6:00pm. That’s where you get your map and discount card.

The neighborhood galleries open their doors creating a lively art night in the neighborhoods of Old City.

From visual art to lives performances to art galleries there won’t be a boring moment.

Be sure to claim your tickets free of charge on their site.
