CreePIYU IV: Can you BE BRAVE?

In celebration of the upcoming Halloween season, Far Eastern University (FEU) Manila will open its doors to the public as it transforms into a campus of tricks and treats with the fourth installment of the annual CreePIYU this October 23. 

Organized by FEU Guides through the President's Committee on Culture (PCC), the event promotes the school’s artistic environment — from the state-of-the-art historical buildings to the university’s encouraging creative culture.

CreePIYU is a sought-after community event that has evolved through the years. It has taken the form of a horror school and a mystery crime scene, with various PCC cultural groups making the themes come to life. This year, the event bewilders the mind as it follows the setting of a haunted hospital that straddles the border between sanity and insanity.

The most-anticipated activity of CreePIYU is the night tour in one of FEU’s UNESCO-awarded buildings where participants will be challenged to solve various puzzles and problems. To give a more holistic experience, the school grounds will be swarmed by members of the FEU PCC's Cultural Groups dressed as zombies and ghosts. However, for those faint of heart, a mini carnival with Halloween-themed booths and games will be mounted in the FEU Plaza to enjoy.

For inquiries, please contact PCC at (02) 8849 4145 or through the FB pages @FEUPCC and @FEUGuidesPCC.
