A mixed crowd of deaf and hard-of-hearing students, staff and alumni gathered for the Deaf CSUNians club Halloween party on Friday, Oct. 28, from 6-9 p.m. at CSUN’s National Center on Deafness in Jeanne Chisholm Hall.

The event featured food and drinks, games, and a costume contest that allowed each contestant to perform their costume character and model to increase their chance of winning in whatever category they nominated themselves in: best, scariest or cutest. Some of those who were in the audience got to experience the deaf version of hot potatoes.

The three winners of the costume contest were each awarded $10 for their victory.
