This past Tuesday, ONU hosted a trick or treat event for the children of Ada. Dormitories across campus were decorated with different themes for the children to walk through as they collected candy, such as “Finding Dory”. Volunteers from different student organizations lead groups of children and parents from building to building. Overall, the event appeared to be very successful with many people in attendance.
Although I did not participate in this event, I truly enjoyed seeing the little kids dressed up in their costumes on campus. I was surprised to see parents dressed up as well; their costumes were a bit scarier than the children’s! I felt a bit of nostalgia watching them trick or treat and it made me miss walking door to door on Halloween with my family and friends. Halloween is not my favorite holiday, but I appreciate it and think that it is a fun time of year—no matter what age you are!
Thanks, Ohio Northern University, for putting on a Halloween event for the village of Ada. It was so cute!
