Clarkson University Physician Assistant Students Create Haunted Infirmary to Support Medical Mission Trip

Students in Clarkson University's Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies Program will host a haunted house to raise funds for their annual medical mission trip.

Potsdam's Haunted InfirmaryPotsdam's third annual Haunted Infirmary will be held from 7 p.m. to midnight on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 28 and 29, at Clarkson Hall, 59 Main St. in Potsdam (#44 on the map at ).

Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the door or at the Clarkson Men's Hockey games on Oct. 7 and 14 at Cheel Arena.

Money raised from the event will fund the program's annual medical mission trip to the Dominican Republic, where students in the PA program provide healthcare and medicine to the local community.
Potsdam's Haunted Infirmary is designed as a psychological thriller and lasts approximately 20 minutes. Visitors are invited to enter the old hospital -- but will they make it out or be trapped forever with the other patients?

Nearly 50 actors are participating in the haunted infirmary. The PA program has collaborated with offices throughout Clarkson to plan the event, and the Clarkson Union Board, which organizes activities on campus, is involved in creating a realistic and scary experience.
