Frater Sodalis will hold its biggest fundraiser of the year, the Frat Haunted Island, from Wednesday-Monday.
This is a tradition 34 years in the making, and members are planning to make it different than the years before. President, Joel Childers, said, “We are working hard to set everything up to make it different than before. It is going to be very creepy, and there will be clowns.”
Because the Frats are setting up everything, their current pledge class is helping, too.
Andrew Boone, sophomore theatre major from Abilene, said, “I have not been out there yet due to the play, but I can’t wait to be a zombie.”
Henry Touchton, sophomore biochemistry major from Abilene, said he can’t wait to have fun and scare people.
Kolton Burkhalter, sophomore Digital Entertainment Major from Canyon, said they’ve had a good turnout of guys helping to set everything up before opening night. “We set up the fence and the walls for the island,” he said. “I am possibly going to be the Slender Man.”
The Island is located at 401 Loop 322 and a sign at the site points to the Island.
Admission is $10 for anyone wanting a scare. Thursday is student night. Those with a student ID pay only $5. The scaring starts at 7:30 p.m. and runs until the scaring is over. Childers said the island is geared toward high school students and older, but all ages are welcome.
