First-year Computer Science major Adam Kamoun, who is from Tunisia, is among NCC’s
international students about to experience the spooky fun of Halloween for the first time.
“It’s going to be a fun experience,” Kamoun said of the prospect of attending the college’s
annual Halloween festival and dance.
The dance is scheduled for 8 p.m. to midnight Friday, Oct. 20 in the Student Life Zone on the
Main campus. The celebration and related events during Halloween week will be open to
everyone at NCC.
A lot of thought and preparations go into this party to make the turnout as great as possible,
said Student Senate President Jesse Sharpe. Planning began more than a month ago and involves
the Senate and a number of clubs.
Partygoers can expect to walk into an eerie and spooky atmosphere with quite a few jump
scares although no clowns will be involved, Sharpe said.
Food is a strong draw to any party. “Last year some of the food included snow cones, popcorn,
water, iced tea, lemonade, and smaller snacks,” Sharpe said. “This year there is a bigger budget
for the Halloween party, so that will make a few things a lot better and more fun for returning
About $950 was budgeted for the event, but the festival and dance is also relying on donations.
Times and dates for related Halloween events will be publicized, including a haunted hayride,
haunted basement and pumpkin carving.
Assisting the Student Senate in organizing the festivities are Zeta Kappa Psi, Phi Theta Kappa
and The Commuter.
