Party - First-year student Dinora Marin won the costume contest held at the RHA and S2S Halloween party. Marin received an iPod.

  The Residence Hall Association and Student 2 Student held a Halloween party Oct. 30.

   RHA and S2S held the party for students to dance, socialize and have fun. More than 75 to 100 students attended the party. Several students danced to different styles of music. Ryan Hogue, the disc jockey, played R&B, rap, country and even the “Cha Cha Slide” by Mr. C The Slide Man.

    Karee Dowty, graduate assistant of Royer Hall and RHA advisor, said the groups wanted to host a fun, safe party.

   “We wanted to provide a fun alternative to an alcohol party," Dowty said.

    RHA held a costume contest towards the end of the night.  They gave away an iPod as the prize. Mitch Meredith, Karee Dowty, David Dowty, junior Brittany Pickett and sophomore Yolanda Atkins judged the contest.

   Participants walked in a circle so the judges could look at their costumes, and the judges picked the most unique. Judges selected first-year student Dinora Marin as the winner.

    Marin dressed as a Geisha, a Japanese woman trained to provide entertainment for men. She borrowed a Kimono from her Japanese teacher, whitened her face and used make-up to create the look of a Geisha.  

    Marin said how she picked her costume. 

   “I love Japanese; ever since I was a little girl, I loved Japanese Culture,” Marin said. “I think the Geishas are beautiful, even though they are a high class prostitute.”  

   About 20 students from RHA and S2S worked for a month and a half to put the party together. They continued the tradition of a Halloween party started in 2005.
