Dorm Gets Early Jump on Trick or Treating
Parents looking for a safe trick or treating option, and an early chance to test out their children’s Halloween costumes, are invited to the Oklahoma City University campus Wednesday evening for a bountiful source of candy.
Students in the Walker Hall building, a dormitory facing Northwest 23rd Street near Kentucky Avenue, will be handing out candy from 5:30-8:30 p.m. Oct. 29 during the annual event. Ashleigh Arnall of the OCU Student Life office said every floor of the six-story building will be open for trick-or-treating business, and the dorm’s resident assistants will help participants along on their quest for candy.
Children are encouraged but not required to wear their Halloween costumes.
Printed invitations have gone out to area elementary schools, as the dorm dwellers are hoping for a good community turnout.
“The students have started collecting the candy and can’t wait to see everyone in their costumes,” Arnall said. “We’re hoping to see a lot of kids from the surrounding neighborhood. It’s a lot of doors and an indoor environment so you don’t have to worry about traffic The RAs (resident assistants) on each floor will help show the way, so it will be easy for people to find their way around.”
