"It's usually the random people who show up and don't have a link to Utah State who cause problems," said Laurel Evans, USU's programming vice president.

Holly Stringham, WSU campus activities team chairwoman, said she was excited for the party and to see the turnout.

"People didn't believe us that the I fowl was only for USU students," Stringham said "Our adviser, Nikki Nicholas, had gotten a bulletin from USU telling her to let tire students know that they wouldn't be allowed at The Howl, which in turn makes WSU's party more fun because more students attended" Graeme Abraham attended the Deadman's Party dressed as Edward Scissorhands, a costume that took him 2 hours to create. It paid off. A continuous stream of people asked him about his costume or wanted to take a picture next to him, and he won scariest costume at the party.

Astronomers at the time were only aware of the Milky Way, so Einstein applied his theory to the galaxy he believed was static. "What we learned very happily after is that the Milky Way is not the whole universe and that this cosmological constant certainly isn't needed to make the Milky Way a static thing," Kirshner said.

|Description||Weber's current student newspaper, the Signpost, first appeared on September 29, 1937. For two years prior to that time, campus news was disseminated via announcements posted on a bulletin board known as the "Signpost". As a result, the masthead of the first issue of the paper itself featured a rudimentary wooden sign with the title spelled out in rustic-looking letters. Over the years the paper has been published continuously, though the look, size and style has changed several times.|
