On October 25 during Collaboration, the Monarchs enjoyed Halloween festivities at the Link-o-ween event hosted by Link Crew. This event included a hospital-themed haunted house set up throughout the basement, where freshmen were free to walk through and enjoy an afternoon of fun and frights.

The haunted house this year was the first one in a while, since Link Crew was not able to put on any in-person events last year due to COVID-19. NDB was happy to continue its long tradition, but this year was slightly different than what some Tigers may remember.

“So we’ll be having a haunted house during a Collaboration period [instead of at night] for the freshmen because we didn’t want to take away the haunted house because it’s kind of a tradition for the freshmen, but we also didn’t want to make it on Homecoming night for Serra,” said NDB senior and Link Crew Vice President Kaila Acbay. “We wanted them to have the fun but also enjoy things outside of school, like Serra Homecoming.”

Students transformed NDB’s basement into a frightening scene full of spooky music, eerie skits, and Link Crew members dressed up in terrifying costumes.

Freshmen were separated by homerooms and guided through the haunted house by a Link Crew tour guide who told the tale of a haunted hospital that has taken over the NDB basement. Link Crew members were all excited to participate in this event and give the Monarchs an opportunity to celebrate Halloween at NDB.

Tigers were led through the hospital-gone-wrong in the basement and, in the process, they were faced with panicked doctors and escaped patients who chased them around the hallway. Students enjoyed the scary, yet fun event, and Link Crew members were all proud of their work.

“Link Crew Board and the leadership really put a lot of work into the haunted house,” said Acbay after the event.

We had a lot of fun. I would say it was a success.”

After students were able to walk through the haunted house, they enjoyed Halloween-themed treats in their homerooms provided by Link Crew.

The Link-o-ween Haunted House was a great experience for Tigers and a fun way to reintroduce the Halloween spirit into the community.
