Trick or treat
Trick or treat
Give us something good to eat
If you don’t
We don’t care
We’ll put red ants in your hair!
Depending on the culture you are from, you may or may not be familiar with this song. There are a variety of versions of the “Trick-or-Treat” song, but one thing they all have in common is that people get to wear spooky and creative outfits and go knocking around your neighbors’ doors for sweets. The pure excitement of sugar-rush nights slowly changes as you grow up and trick-or-treating is no longer the thing. After growing up, dressing up in fun outfits and going to parties to drink to one’s heart's content becomes the focus of the night, as you will see every street corner filled with these hyped up young adults. The Hanyang University Business School (HUBS) decided to bring in this excitement and hosted a grand Halloween party for the students as well.
"A candy a day keeps the monster away."
To give a brief introduction, HUBS is one of the most renowned business schools in Korea. Fully accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), an international institution of business education that sets the educational quality standard for business schools around the world, and the Korean Association of Business Education Accreditation (KABEA), and as a member of the Association of the Asia-Pacific Business Schools (AAPBS), HUBS consists of over 4,000 talented students including one of the highest percentages of foreign students in HYU. Due to this reputation, its students are one of the most favored groups of business graduates in the private sector.

 Apart from its excellent studying conditions and educational programs, HUBS makes sure to take extra measures to enhance inclusivity of its foreign students as a part of the HUBS family by hosting various cultural events. The ‘HUBS International Students Night: Halloween Party,' which was held on November 2nd at the School of Business building, can be seen as one of its many efforts. According to Lim Ji-eun, a HUBS administrations office staff in charge of the Halloween party, the main objective of the event was to magnify the exchange between Korean and international students. “The International Students Night events are held under various themes such as the year-end party and Chuseok (Korean Thanksgiving). It’s funded and held by the HUBS administrations office along with the Chinese student union and 'Glitters,’ a student club that works with international students. This event was held under the theme of Halloween, and it was open not only to HYU Korean and international students, but also to other university students as well,” said Lim.

The event was divided into two main corners. One was the creative corner, which included various programs where makeup artists would give spooky makeovers, free temporary tattoos, and 3D stickers. It also had darts and photo booths where one could print photos on the spot. The other corner included special performances done by DIOR (a dance group from the HYU School of Social Sciences) and lotteries. Students were also provided with delicacies and drinks. Moni Nguyen (Business Administration, 3rd year) and Valerie Wong (Financial Management, 4th year) were also very excited about the event, enjoying the music and the food. “We’ve never been to a Halloween party before, so we’re really looking forward to the night. We came here hoping to meet new friends as well, and we already did!” said Nguyen and Wong.
Just like the Halloween party, there are more upcoming events for both international and Korean students in the hopes of providing a full-time experience that is definitely worth looking into. I hope everybody had a bootiful, spooktacular, and fangtastic Halloween!
