Spooktacular Haunted House

Spooktacular Flyer

Every year, SGA coordinates a fundraising event for Florida International University’s philanthropy, United Way. United Way is the world’s largest privately funded nonprofit organization. Their mission encompasses improving the quality of life for the common good through three avenues – helping children and youth reach their full potential through quality education, promoting financial stability, and providing healthcare.

This year, SGA has decided to host “Spooktacular,” a Halloween-themed event featuring a haunted house, food trucks, a live DJ, face-painting, and a pumpkin-decorating competition, with all proceeds benefiting United Way. Tickets for the haunted house range from $2 (single entry) to $5 (unlimited entries).

If you’re feeling unsure about your major choice, then we strongly encourage for you to attend our workshop where we’ll help you look into the different majors offered at FIU, discover tools to assess your strengths, and feel confident in the academic options that you can take advantage of as a student.
