The Social Network of Graduates Halloween Spectacular

Get excited graduates because Halloween falls on a Friday this year!

This is a sign from the pagan gods that they want us to celebrate All Hallows Eve by purchasing cheap costumes, taking selfies and dancing the night away to Thriller and Monster Mash.


For this spectacular party we return to The Lounge (Level 3, Uni Pub). Free entry for members and $5 for non-members.

Of course there will be PRIZES for the best dressed and LOADS of drink specials.

See you there!
