Several MU students came to classes dressed in costume, while others waited until their last classes were over to begin the festivities, including pumpkin carving.

Senior Jon Straub works on his computer Monday afternoon in the MU Student Center. Straub put together his costume of the character Link from the Zelda game series with clothing his brother-in-law made and weapon items he bought online.
Senior Alex Icet, right, talks with Brooke Morris on Monday in the Fine Arts Building. Icet made her pirate costume herself for Halloween and brought her Green-cheeked Conure, Icarus, as part of the outfit. He sits behind her head when she bikes to class and jumps around on her shoulders, arms and hands when she's standing still.
MU senior Jay Ott carves a pumpkin on his porch after his last class on Monday. Ott said he waited until the last minute to buy the pumpkin, but he figured the day of Halloween was a good time to do it.
Pumpkin seeds and leftover pumpkin insides remain on a porch on Monday from some pumpkins students Lauren Herman and Jay Ott bought after class. "We had to go to, like, 5 different places," Herman said. They plan to roast the seeds after carving the pumpkins.
