Our Picks of Events on Campus from Oct. 29 to Nov. 5

Each Thursday, The Pioneer highlights three events happening on campus or in Walla Walla over the weekend. Here are this week’s picks:

Mr. Whitman

Eight of Whitman’s hottest male seniors compete in a beauty pageant that will benefit Seattle-based nonprofit Salud Juntos, which works to improve medical practices in Honduras. Friday, Oct. 30 at 7 p.m. Cordiner Hall. Advance tickets are $5 or $8 at the door.

Haunted Hospital

Each year, a group of volunteers turns North Hall (formerly Walla Walla General Hospital) into the scariest place on campus with costumes, makeup, fog machines and fake blood. All proceeds are donated to charity. Saturday, Oct. 31 from 7-10 p.m. Suggested donation of canned food or $3.

Visiting Writers Series: Lydia Davis

This series, organized by Katrina Roberts of the English department, brings prominent writers to campus to share their work. Lydia Davis is a translator and a writer of short stories. She has published six collections of short stories, including “Break It Down” and her most recent, “Varieties of Disturbance,” both of which were finalists for major awards. Monday, Nov. 2 at 7 p.m. in Kimball Theater. Free.
