Last night was perhaps one of the most successful Halloween events ever put on by the International Student Association. We had 200 students show up by 9:00 p.m. with two more hours to go. I’m sure we breached the 300 person guest list.
However, nothing comes for free. In exchange for an amazing event, ISA personnel sacrificed an enormous amount of capital in the forms of time, money, and sanity. Everyone put in a lot of time, and I’m sure by the end some of us were questioning whether or not all the effort was worth it.
But in the end, it surely was! We were justified in choosing a larger venue for our Halloween event (in response to record-breaking coffee hour attendance) as the traditional venue would not have been able to hold 300 guests. We’ve instilled the ISA name into a good 300+ attendees who hopefully in turn attend our other events. We had excellent programming for our attendees.
Hats off to everyone who worked to make it happen.
