of HPU (ASHPU) held its seventh annual Monster’s Ball
on Oct. 25 at Planet Hollywood in Waikiki. 400 presale tickets
were sold before doors opened and about another 30 students
waited outside for an opportunity to get in. Montanee Pornmukda,
sophomore representative, planned the event with help from
other members of ASHPU.
I went because it sounded like this would be a big event,” said
Dafne Deniz, a senior majoring in communication. “I like
the location, because it is really close to where I live.”
Transportation was provided to and from the Hawai‘i Loa
campus, the downtown shuttle stop, and the Ohia and Hana Student
Pupus, a witch’s brew, and an open bar, were provided.
Costume contests were held throughout the night including Best
Couple, Most Scary, and Most Funny. The winners were awarded
prizes, such as a digital camera, in each category.
I really enjoyed being there,” said Tim Lussier, junior
representative and entrepreneurial studies major. “ [it
was good to see] the student government trying to be more active,
and this is one way to get out there and meet students.”
