I thought the event went extremely well. Everything was well organized. Being a participant it didn't seem, or I didn't see any distress from the leaders of the event. But also as a participant it was fun, there was a lot to do and I had a great time!

It was great! With over 90 students in attendance the event was a huge success. Kate Bishop and Pat Farrell were amazing!

The make up was great, the decorations were amazing and the zombie pizza was hilarious.
