Although the holiday season is still a few weeks away, Santa Claus and several of his elves made a stop on the Keuka College campus Monday, Oct. 31.
Pat Reape, director of housing and residence life, dressed as the guy in the red suit for the annual Halloween costume contest in Dahlstrom Student Center. His elves, resident directors (RD) Eugene Mont, Tim White, Rebecca Capek, McKala Accetura, and Margeaux DePrez posed with gifts and candy canes.
Reape and the RDs earned first place in the contest—a pizza party for 15 people.
Second place winners were a group of students known as the Average Lows. The students—Isaiah Nalls, Brandon Franklin, Mark Butto, Justin Napolitano, Alex Fiore, Ricky Newton, Nate Smith, Kyle Rivera, Coty Paige, and Anthony Jones—each earned a certificate for a free meal in the Terrace Café for their efforts.
Third place recipient, Andy Robak, assistant professor of chemistry, received a certificate for a free smoothie at the Terrace Café for his portrayal of the Macho Man.
