Trick or Treaters Welcome The Department of Residence Life at East Stroudsburg University of Pennsylvania invites community members to “Trick or Treat through the Halls” on Wednesday, Oct. 29, 6-8 p.m. The event, sponsored by ESU’s Residence Hall Association (RHA), is open to all elementary school-aged children in the community at no cost. Children who participate are asked to wear their costumes and bring a trick-or-treat bag. Trick-or-treaters will meet at 6 p.m. on the University Quad, located at the center of campus. Parents or guardians are required to accompany children to campus and must remain present, whether they choose to escort their children through the residence halls or wait in a common area while the event takes place. Groups of children will be escorted from hall to hall by student volunteers from the education department and various campus organizations. Participating halls and residents will hand out treats from their dorm rooms and lobbies. Email smithj@esu.edu or call 570-422-3123 for more information. (read more)
