Have you carved your jack-o’-lantern yet? No? Are you a College of Charleston alum? Yes? Then you’re in luck, the fine folks at your alma mater have published some nifty CofC-themed pumpkin carving tips and tricks.

Earlier this week, CofC Today posted some step-by-step instructions on how to carve the perfect Clyde-o’-lantern, and they’re actually pretty interesting for someone who’s never really strayed from the basic toothy porch pumpkin.

We’re considering a Freedom of Information Act request for the template used to make the Glenn McConnell pumpkin seen in the video. Can’t just sneak something like that in, y’all.

This is a developing story…
