The Pathway to Law School Club had a costume contest in front of the E3 building to promote their club activities.
They had a table next to the front door of the building and across from the Student Service Center.
The costume contest was held from 12:30 p.m. to 12:45 p.m. for students.
The members passed out candy bags to any student that had a costume on for Halloween
One of the members of the Pathway to Law School program, Lily Gayten, said that two uses for the costume contest were for “fun and to bring awareness to the club,” she said.
Lily also said that they had gift cards for prizes for the best costume. The gift cards ranged from $10 to $25 for Jamba Juice and Starbucks.
The Pathway to Law School is a program that teaches “Law and Order exist for the purpose of establishing Justice.”
The club meets from 12:15 p.m. to 1:45 p.m. in building F7-215 and also has the meeting on Zoom.
The club also has field trips to law schools, courthouses and other places related to careers in law.
They also have law-related events and functions held once a semester at East Los Angeles College.
To join the club you need to have at least a 3.00 GPA and must complete a set of classes to be in the club or special consideration can be given to students.
At 12:10 they were getting a lot of people stopping by their table in between their classes.
People looked happy to get a candy bag when the members handed it to them.
Each time a student passed by, they either had a costume on or were curious about the club.
A club member talked to one person about the club and the student looked interested in joining the club each time they were given information.
Some of the club members were in costume and played music during the costume contest.
After a while people stopped showing up because of class schedules but the club members still had a blast.
Anytime a student would walk up to the table the members were excited to talk about the club or how good the costume looked.
They played music and just talked about the club to pass time.
The club members used their own money to get the prizes to pass out to the winners of the costume contest.
There were many people with good costumes that went past the club’s table.
Inside the candy bag the club included chocolate, Skittles, a pencil and stickers.
