Haunting the halls of Hawai'i Pacific University

Students living in HPU residence halls celebrated Halloween by decorating their buildings and their rooms.

“ We had an awesome event in the residence halls last night,” said Beth Muaina, associate director of Housing: “Haunted Halls.”

Each residence hall converted their hall into a Haunted House. Judges from the Housing and Residence Life Office and the Dining Commons Staff walked through each hall and, of course, they were subject to all the horrible hauntings in the hall.

“ Halls really got creative and residents were enthusiastically engaged,” said Muaina. “As a judge, I was thoroughly impressed with the creativity, effort, and enthusiastic participation of the residents! Just AWESOME!”

Graduate students don’t have time for a social life.
Or do they?
