Kokomo, Ind. – Lorie Blunk and the Student Union Board (SUB) at Indiana University Kokomo are diligently working to prepare for their signature event of the year, Halloween Open House.
Children in the community, ages 10 and under, are invited to spend the evening trick-or-treating and participating in activities this Friday, October 26, from 6 to 8 p.m., in Alumni Hall. The cost is one dollar per child; parents are free.
"It's exciting, hectic, and fun all at the same time," said Blunk, SUB director. "I know I speak for all of SUB when I say that we love organizing this event and bringing together the campus and community."
Many campus organizations are preparing for Halloween Open House by creating themed booths for the event. Each booth will pass out candy, some will have a planned game or activity, and there will also be face painting.
A popular children's movie will be shown in Kresge Auditorium at 5:30 p.m. and then again at 7:30 p.m.
Kat Stremiecki, coordinator of programming and applied learning, looks forward to Halloween Open House each year.
"This is a great service project for SUB and the rest of our students. We are always excited to interact with and give back to the community."
Halloween Open House is an award-winning event, named Best Program by the National Association for Campus Activities.
