NDSU students engaged in several fun activities to celebrate Halloween on Wednesday night.
Campus residence halls opened their doors to community trick-or-treaters. The residence halls have been involved in community trick-or-treating for about 15 years as a way to give back to the community.
“We don’t see kids a lot on campus, so it is a great way for NDSU to open its doors to the community,” said Becky Bahe, director of Residence Life of Leadership. “It’s cool for kids to see the dorms; they look up to NDSU students.”
Students that live in the residence halls got the chance to show off their costumes and pass out candy to children that live in the community, while children got the chance to go on the NDSU campus and go in the NDSU dorms to trick-or-treat. Resident Assistants also helped by passing out candy to children that came to trick-or-treat.
Each participating residence hall also organized different activities for Halloween night.
Dinan Hall had a carnival theme in the lounge where they passed out candy.
Kids went trick-or-treating throughout Thompson Hall to students who had signs on their door. Students handed out candy, as well as Halloween fun facts and safety tips on how to stay safe on Halloween.
The Living Learning Center also offered trick-or-treating in the main lobby. Other dorms also organized various games and activities.
T-Loft apartments also organized a costume party event in the lounge. Residents dressed up for a costume competition and gathered for refreshments.
