Halloween Party 2015

Halloween Party


Dear Jschool community!

Welcome to our first SPJ-party! There are many more to come.

Many of you have asked why we ask you to pay for the tickets. Firstly, SPJ booked the place beforehand so that we would have our own space to party in. Secondly, SPJ works from a very limited budget and much of what you pay now will be invested into more cool stuff coming along the way this fall, such as trips, screenings, parties, Jschool merch and… Lucille’s Ball!

Stay tuned!
