Hallowe’en social a treat for staff and faculty

Hundreds of staff and faculty members tricked and treated their way into Winclare A Monday for the annual campus Hallowe’en luncheon sponsored by the Office of the President.

Two individuals each won an extra vacation day after Provost Leo Groarke announced the winner for best individual costume as “the Paperbag princess.” It turns out that both Rosemary Plastow of the Student Counselling Centre and Jacqueline Mellish of Residence Services came dressed as the Robert Munsch heroine.

Top group costume honours went to the Centre for Teaching and Learning for its Wizard of Oz-themed entry; the Law Library staff for the Law-Bee-ists; and the Faculty of Science for its Harry Potter ensemble.

University photographer Tory James prepared this photographic record of some of the inventive costumes:
