There’s still time for campus offices to put themselves on the map and get candy ready for trick-or-treaters, say organizers of the second annual Campus-Wide Treat Trail.
Sandra Riccio-Muglia, director of student events for the Student Centre, has invited all UWindsor offices to participate in the twist on Halloween tradition from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on October 31.
“Last year's Treat Trail was highly successful and we want to bring it back, even bigger,” she says. “This campus-wide initiative has shown its value in bringing our campus community together and we want to build on this new tradition.”
Student centre staff will hand out treat bags and maps directing students to all participating departments. Signage placed around campus and matching posters for each department will alert students to the treat stops.
“Departments told us last year that this is a fun opportunity to promote their locations and services to students,” says Riccio-Muglia.
She encourages participants to get creative with their decor and candy giveaways: “The more fun we put into it, the more inviting it becomes.”
The deadline to be listed on the maps and other promotional materials is October 25. To claim your place on the treat trail, contact Riccio-Mulgia at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also on Halloween, the student centre will host a free illusionist and magic show at noon.
