The campus and local community can enjoy Halloween a little early this year. TWU is holding its annual Boo-at-the-U on Oct. 20 on the lawn of Hubbard Hall. The event is meant for children but gives TWU students the option to dress-up for Halloween. Starting at 5:30 p.m., the event is free to the surrounding Denton area, but it is recommended to donate one canned food to the TWU pantry. Guests can expect to enjoy trunk or treat, a haunted house, carnival games, train-rides, inflatables and massive amounts of candy!
Children in past years had enjoyed zombies wandering the garden. Make sure to come by and see if they have returned from the dead. Parents can also be at ease knowing that the event is secure and their children can enjoy the event safely. With recent hoaxes of scary clowns, parents have been on guard, but they will be happy to know that DPS is always available on campus to protect and serve the TWU vicinity.
