Residence Halls Tradition Since 1994
By Daniel Fanning
Students at the University of Wisconsin-Superior will again open their residence halls to Halloween trick-or-treaters from 5 to 7:30 p.m. on Sat., October 31.
For the 22nd year in a row students living in the Crownhart, Curran-McNeill-Ostrander, Ross and Hawkes residence halls along Catlin Avenue will decorate their hallways and be ready to hand out treats as children through sixth grade are guided through the buildings by a residence hall staff member. Each year about 1,200 children visit the campus for this event.
The new Link at Ross-Hawkes Hall, 2231 Catlin Ave., will feature carnival activities for children. Kid friendly arts, craft and storytelling will be featured at Crownhart Hall, 1524 Catlin Ave. Curran-McNeill-Ostrander Halls at 1714 Catlin Ave. will feature a haunted house theme for children 12+ or parent consent. Children visiting any of the residence halls must be accompanied by an adult.
Parents may park free in university lots near the residence halls.
Each year since 1994, students have invited children from the community to trick-or-treat in a safe environment within the residence halls at UW-Superior. The event is sponsored by the Residence Life Office and the Residence Hall Association. Cash and candy donations are being accepted for the program.
