Boo at the U to give trick-or-treaters a head start on Hallowe’en

Kids find a friendlier type of family fun at the annual Boo at the U event, Thursday, October 27. Little trick-or-treaters can give their costumes a dress rehearsal from 6 to 8 p.m. in Winclare Room, Vanier Hall, where they make the rounds for activities and candy.

Organized by Residence Life staff and the Windsor Inter Residence Council, the event is open to the children of UWindsor faculty and staff.

“We put the emphasis on fun rather than scares,” says Joyceln Lorito, residence life coordinator in Macdonald and Alumni halls. “We get a lot of little ones here and so we try for activities suitable for younger children.”

All children must be accompanied by a parent. Admission is free, but organizers encourage participants to bring a canned good for donation to the student food bank.
