Robert Farmer said, “I think NCC threw a good party tonight.”

Zachary Clift said it was “awesome” and a “nice set-up.”

The students were referring to a late-night dance in the Student Life Zone, part of a series of Halloween events Oct. 25 on the Main campus.

The dance, sponsored by the Student Senate, ran from 8 p.m. to midnight and featured a disc jockey playing music throughout the evening. There was a break for a prize, a costume contest, a couples costume contest and a “twerking” contest.

Students could attend five events between 6 p.m. and midnight, each event sponsored by a different group, said Student Life administrator Miranda Baker.

A $3 ticket allowed students to enjoy every event. The celebration was open to any NCC student, as well as anyone else 16 and older. Included in the ticket price was food, such as hotdogs, s’mores, popcorn, snow cones, candy and pizza.

Proceeds were split evenly among the sponsoring organizations.

Besides the dance, other evening events were:

An art gallery sponsored by the Art Student Association in College Center 220 from 6 to 11.

A bonfire sponsored by Good Growers in the East 40 gardens, where students roasted s’mores and hotdogs.

A haunted hallway, sponsored by the Zeta Kappa Psi sorority, in the College Center cellar from 8:30 to 10:30.

A Residence Hall Council-sponsored hayride, which took students from the mailroom to the gardens. The event ran from 8:30 to 10:30.
