Students Provide Safe Tricks and Treats for Area Children

Hundreds of University of Scranton students on 44 resident hall floors participated in a “Safe Trick or Treat” event for more than 300 area children from United Neighborhood Centers, Friends of the Poor and the campus community on Oct. 30. The University’s Community Outreach Office organized the event that included interactive games, crafts and some “chilling fun” provided by 32 University student clubs and organizations in the McIlhenny Ballroom of the DeNaples Center.
