Halloween came early for guests at the Zombie Ball this weekend.

The undead came to life on the dance floor during K-Rock's Zombie Ball at the Landmark Theatre on Saturday.

Attendees dressed up in their best costumes and slipped on their dancing shoes to boogie the night away.

Makeup artists painted on scary and bloody faces while guests dressed as zombies, vampires and witches hit the dance floor to songs such as Michael Jackson's "Thriller" and NSYNC's "Bye Bye Bye."

The Halloween spirit is in the air with Syracuse Fashion Week's third Snarl fashion show.

It’s not every day that a fashion show opens with little Danny Torrance wheeling down the runway on his iconic tricycle, only to be met by—you guessed it—those ghostly Grady twins and a most unsettling invitation to “come play.”

But this scene from Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining did in fact unfold on a cobweb-covered catwalk in Syracuse’s historic Landmark Theatre on Saturday, for the third Syracuse Snarl fashion event.

A student-run fashion show displayed garments based on various traditional cultures with a modern twist.

On Friday, the Rip the Runway fashion show transported students from central New York to a cultural oasis. 

As the first model sliced through the red fog and stomped onto the catwalk, the audience fell silent. Bright colors poured out onto the runway as rhythmic drums pumped through the Goldstein Auditorium.

Jessica Posner, a Syracuse University professor and "riot-grrl" singer, hosts a feminist rock showcase to counteract a local music scene dominated by men.

Indie music, cheap beers and interesting conversation makes for a usual Friday night at Spark Contemporary Art Space. This past Oct. 2, feminist punks clad in floral prints, combat boots and bandanas screamed, crooned, strummed and shredded raw emotion, angst and revolution in front of a rowdy crowd nodding and moshing along.

For the fourth annual Wellness Week, Syracuse University services and organizations collaborate to put on a week of events that promote physical, nutritional and holistic health.

Running has always been a passion for Syracuse graduate student Danielle Kennedy.

Before graduate school, Kennedy was an All-American track and field athlete.

Now, Kennedy doesn’t have the motivation and pressure of her coaches and teammates to keep her on the path to eating healthy and staying physically fit.

“I have to find self motivation,” Kennedy said.

“I noticed that after I run I’m motivated to do everything. I’m the most motivated to eat a healthy dinner, to go to the library to do homework, and to find time to hang out with my friends.”

Roux is a pop-up dining experience that focuses on sensory and design elements, and was created by two industrial design majors with shared interests.

It started with a mutual love.

The love of design and food helped Rohan Thakore and Ryn Adkins, both fourth year industrial design students, to create Roux.

Roux is a pop-up dining experience that blends food and design, such that it looks past what is on the plate and focuses on the entire sensory experience of eating. Thakore and Adkins have done three events and want to continue to find ways to share their interests. For Thakore, a passion for food is where his path to Roux began.
