Graduates from a Chengdu university who posted a series of ghoulish pictures to celebrate the end of term have received mixed reactions from the general public.

The students in Chengdu, capital of southwest China's Sichuan Province, took a string of photographs using a horror theme and posted the pictures online. The female students from Chengdu University of TCM, all dressed in white gowns, wore their hair down and over their faces and turned the photographs into black-and-white to create a bloodcurdling atmosphere in the anatomical building, the grove and ruins.

The photos soon sparked a mixed debate after they were posted online. Some netizens admired their creativity while others criticized the photos.

One netizen said: "The girls didn't promote the vitality of 'life' but sensationalized a mood of 'death' in the photos. It was a grandstanding that totally lacked the beauty of 'angels in white'." Another added: "Such photos had no respect to your major."

Despite the negativity from some netizens, who posted comments online, most were positive with their feedback.

"They are free to make any choice and do what they want. Such photos were nothing serious," One netizen said in defense of the pictures.
