Though the pumpkin carving kit included a stencil packet, both girls decided to create their own designs. Connelly and Turk had never carved pumpkins before and decided to try it out this year to help decorate their first off campus house. Connelly carefully carves out the eyes of her pumpkin. Turk, a digital media production and journalism student, carved a pumpkin with "boo" written in its smile. The pumpkins sit outside of their house, lit with tea candles Connelly, a digital media production major and studio art minor, created a menacing looking pumpkin. Connelly wanted something spooky and decided to free hand her pumpkin.
