Safe Trick or Treat in The University of Scranton Residence Halls allows invited guests from local community partners such as Friends of the Poor and United Neighborhood Centers, a chance to trick or treat in a safe area.  Resident students hand out candy while escorted by student volunteers.  A party afterward, hosted by our student government clubs, is filled with fun activities, crafts and games.   Each year this large on-campus event attracts hundreds of student volunteers, area children, and resident hall participants.


Student volunteers are needed for the event in many ways!

  • Resident Hall Floors- hand out candy to children.  Decorate your floor!  Candy is provided by your floor.  Some candy to hand out may be available from the CSSJ office.  More information will be available shortly.

  • Students are needed to escort children on the trick or treat route- this involves walking with a group of children around campus on our  pre-made route, then act as a buddy to those children for the party afterwards.  Students can feel free to do this with a friend or alone.

  • Club members- have your club host a table of crafts/games at the after Trick or Treating party in the Byron.  Club members can come in shifts to assure all your members have a chance to participate.  Supplies for crafts and games are the responsibility of the club.  The majority of children will be in the Byron from 2-3pm, after trick or treating, so this is when the majority of members should be on hand.  Only a handful are needed for set up at 1pm.  Club members may be asked to escort children around trick or treating as well.

RA's will register floors beginning October 1st through Royal Sync.  Clubs will sign up for a table and let us know your intended craft/game through Royal Sync at the time of registration.  Registration for both closes on the Thursday prior to the event at 1pm.
