WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - History combines with Halloween fun for one class of students at Purdue.
History 104-Introduction to the Modern World held a Historical Costume Contest Thursday.
Students dressed up and gave short presentations on their costume for extra credit.
Associate Professor Jennifer Foray said about 25 students dressed up, which is more than what she expected.
"I expected it to be less, simply because we had the exam on Tuesday," Foray said. "I thought they were exhausted and it was raining. They did a really great job. I really do think they do a great job with it. Yes, I know it's for extra credit. I'm always so impressed at the creativity that they put into the outfits."
Foray says some of her favorites were a 1920's girl who taught everyone the Charleston and one student's impersonation of President Kennedy.
