It is intended to provide a safe and fun way for families to enjoy Halloween festivities, early exposure of a collegiate environment to children, and  increase the community’s knowledge about the campus. Attendants will enjoy various activities and informational booths, followed by trunk-or-treating, which means they go from trunk to trunk getting treats. Organizations and departments can sign up to provide activity booths, trunks and candy, or both, from September 18 to October 20 at Do you have questions?
