This Is Halloween at WSU

The Flaming W logo has a Halloween make-over.

It’s Halloween week at WSU— will you choose tricks or treats, or both?

For those who answer “treats,” start your Halloween celebration a little early by stopping by the courtyard outside Kryzsko Commons on Wednesday for Pumpkin Painting Night. Pi Sigma Epsilon will be hosting the event between 5-8pm and for $5, you will receive a pumpkin and enough painting supplies to make a Halloween masterpiece for your front porch or living room window.

On Thursday, the treats will be flowing as students living in the residence halls hand out candy to trick-or-treaters from 6-8pm. Winona State University and Housing and Residence Life invite Winona community members and their children to go trick-or-treating at the following residence halls: Lourdes, Prentiss-Lucas, Morey-Shepard, Richards, Conway Sheehan, Tau Center, Maria, and Kirkland/New Center.

And if you want to get a little more mileage out of your awesome Halloween costume (or lack thereof), head over to Lourdes Hall after Res Hall Trick-or Treating for Mugshot’s “Halloween Night” at 8pm. Mugshots will provide the prizes, Chartwells will provide the candy, coffee and treats and Zoe Vossen and Robert Briggs will provide the music. You just need to provide yourself and have a great time!

If tricks are more your idea of Halloween fun, get ready for a scare at Tau Kappa Epsilon’s second annual Haunted House held in the basement of MC’s Sport’s Bar and Grill at 121 W Second St. The Haunted House will be open for tours on Oct. 31st from 4pm-12:30pm. The Haunted House is a fundraiser for St. Jude’s Research Hospital and  admission costs $5 for adults and $2 for students and children under 10.  Though children are allowed to go through the house, parents should use caution since strobe lighting, extreme darkness and claustrophobic spaces, graphic imagery and frightening performers are used for scary effects.

If you are looking for a Halloween thrill without so much potential for nightmares, The WSU Sustainability House will host a kid-friendly Haunted House from 6-8pm on Oct. 31. There will also be spooky activities and games for a fun evening for the whole family.

Whether you go for the tricks, the treats or both, have a happy Halloween!
