Safe Treat Halloween at UW

October 27, 2011

The University of Wyoming will provide multiple ways for families to have a safe and warm trick-or-treating experience.

Safe Treat will take place Monday, Oct. 31, in the Wyoming Union from 4-6 p.m., and in the Greek houses and residence halls from 6-8 p.m. Trick-or-treaters can participate in games and activities such as cookie decorating and collect a lot of candy.

"Safe Treat gives the children in the community a warm and safe environment to go trick-or-treating in while getting to interact with college students," says Becky Adair, area coordinator for Downey Hall. "This event gives youths an opportunity to familiarize and identify themselves with a positive college environment while providing college students who are away from their families a sentimental connection to home."

Parents can feel secure about the candy being given out in the residence halls, because it is provided by UW Residence Life & Dining Services. Also, costumes can be shown off in the warm Washakie Center.

Recognized student organizations, UW departments and Laramie community organizations host The Wyoming Union Safe Treat. The residence halls Safe Treat is hosted by the Department of Residence Life & Dining Services and the Residence Halls Association.
