Costumed children trick-or-treated down the halls of North Complex Monday night for Halloween in the Halls.
Sponsored by the Residence Hall Association (RHA), students signed up to hand out candy in their residence halls in North Complex.
Students are provided candy and a door sign by RHA and the housing department. This year $4,000 was allotted for purchasing candy at Hy-Vee.
Sarah Liddell, the Richardson and Olson residence hall director and RHA adviser, said the event’s goal is “to give to the community and have the community visit the residence halls.”
Brittany Goodall, a first-year student, said she enjoys the excitement the children have for Halloween.
“I love to see the smile on their face when they get candy,” Goodall said.
Duña Vanderhorst, a first-year student, handed out candy on third floor Richardson. She said this was a unique experience for her.
“I’m a foreign student — I am from the Netherlands — and this is probably the only Halloween I will ever experience,” she said. “I thought, ‘This is a good way of seeing how it is.'”
