10/31 NTNU CLA Halloween

Following the tradition from the previous year, the College of Liberal Arts once again hosted a Halloween event on October 31st. This event was open to all NTNU students and attracted a significant number of participants, including students and faculty members from various colleges and departments, who came together to enjoy the festivities. The festive happiness provided a good chance for students to relieve from the stress of midterm exams.
To participate, attendees needed to visit the Dean’s Office and recite the secret phrase, “Knock knock, treat no trick!” In return, they received a generous handful of sweets. However, that was just the beginning. By checking in at the Dean’s Office on Instagram and tagging the official accounts of CLA and the EMI program, participants had the opportunity to enter a lucky draw. The array of prizes in the lucky draw enticed a large number of people.
In addition to these activities, participants could dress up in Halloween costumes and take a picture with a Polaroid camera to take home as a keepsake. The game associated with this activity was not only entertaining but also educational. The game’s facilitators would spin a globe, randomly select a continent, and then, in English, participants had to name two to three countries within that continent. Exchange students, on the other hand, had to name the countries in Chinese to qualify for a free Polaroid.
The pictures captured the smiles and happiness of everyone involved, perfectly reflecting the event’s aim of providing a fantastic time for all.
