Campus culture: Halloween Party 2016

Everybody likes to play dress-up, so every year students crowd into a NAIST dormitory lounge to join the Halloween party. Between Halloween-themed potluck dishes, sushi and pizza, party-goers enjoy the spooky atmosphere and drinks.

In keeping with the theme of the party, the program included silly party games, such as Telephone with drawings and Who Am I?. Winning teams were treated to thundering applause and prizes like Haribo wine gummy and chocolate.
