The Oswego State community prepare for exciting and safe Halloween programs on campus. Events like Scalesburry is returning; a haunted house and Halloween extravaganza. There is also a Trick or Treat program going on in several of the residence halls on campus, this provides a safe and healthy environment for local kids to trick-or-treat.\
As per recent tradition Scales and Waterbury hall organize a Halloween program involving a haunted house, plenty of food, and a screening of several Halloween themed movies. What will be different this year is that Scalesburry Haunted House will take place in Lee Hall instead of Scales Hall. As for the resident halls, Waterbury will have food and Scales will be screening horror movies. The haunted house will be staffed by students and with help of several on campus entities such as Residence Hall Association (RHA) and the Oswego Theatre Department. Both will mainly help with decorating Lee Hall. This event is part of an initiate on campus to provide safe non-drinking alternatives for college students. This will take place on Friday, October 28 from 8pm to 12 pm.
A safe Halloween program will take place in Funelle hall, Hart hall and other Lakeside residence halls on Sunday October 30. Local kids will be allowed to come through the buidlings and trick-or-treat. There will also be a Halloween party for children in Morano Campus Center. This is another safe alternative to roaming the cold streets at night and gives college students the chance to get better involved in the Oswego community. Trick-or-treating starts at 11 am and goes until 3 pm.
Halloween looks to be an eventful time here at SUNY Oswego.
