Appalachian State Organization Warns Others not to Culturally Appropriate Halloween Costumes

The Appalachian Popular Programming Society (APPS), a university-funded student organization, is warning students not to culturally appropriate their Halloween costume this year.

In posters around the campus and online, APPS is advertising “What Not To Wear: Halloween’s Culture vs Costume,” a forum that will teach students how not to appropriate others’ culture in their costumes.

“Don’t know what to wear for Halloween this year?” APPS asks. “Come to ‘What Not to Wear’ to learn about Halloween costumes that everyone can enjoy. Did we mention its FREE??”

On their on-campus posters, APPS invites students to attend:
“Come have fun at our fashion show and learn the difference between appropriation and appreciation!” it reads.
