First-years get started on their pumpkins during their study break at the Freshman Pumpkin Carving Contest, hosted by the Prefect Program. The resulting jack-o’-lanterns will be judged on Halloween. Free pizza will be awarded to individual entries for ‘most original,’ ‘most Harvard,’ ‘funniest,’ ‘scariest,’ and ‘best overall.’ At Weld Hall, Tasha Bartch ’06 (left) carves her favorite animal, a monkey, into her jungle-themed pumpkin, as Maggie Rossman ’06 (center, seated) and Katie Monticchio ’06 (right) work on their abstract pumpkins. Prefect Stephanie Safdi ’05 observes.
