Are you spooked by the idea of not having anything to do the first week of October?  You’re in luck.  Here are five things to do to get out of your dorm this week.

See the theatre program’s production of Arthur Miller’s classic drama “All My Sons” this weekend at the Scheidegger. The drama, which won the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play, chronicles the story of the families of Steve Deever, who went to jail for running a shop that sold defective airplane parts during the war, and his partner Joe Keller, who went free.  Two free tickets are available to students with a valid ID.  If you miss this week’s run, the play will be back Oct. 11-13.
