Witch Boo!

This Friday, October 31, International House will host its Annual Halloween Costume Party.

Appetizers will be served under the haunted glow of silent, scary movies. Wear your best costume and join the contest—there are prizes! Cash bar; must be 21 and over to drink alcohol. Free for I-House residents; $5 members, alumni and friends; $8 general admission.
