This Halloween weekend, SCAD students got into spirit at the Student Activities Council’s annual Masquerade Ball. On Oct. 29, costumers flocked to the Student Center for dancing, candy, friends, and music outside as well as inside by DJ Jstring Park. The festivities lasted from 9pm until midnight, highlighted by the costume contest, with winners in several categories, including Best Group Costume and Best in Show. SCAD students flaunted their creativity with excellent Halloween costumes.
Many students wait outside the Student Center, which was filled to capacity during most of the event. A tent behind the Student Center housed a second DJ and a photo booth.
