LAWRENCE — Daisy Hill will be the site of Halloween in the Halls, in which Lawrence children may trick-or-treat in the residence halls. The event will take place from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 27, in the University of Kansas residence halls at 15th and Iowa streets.  

Children must be accompanied by an adult for all activities.

Hashinger Hall will feature a not-too-scary haunted house. Ellsworth Hall will provide a Fun Fair, and youngsters may trick-or-treat in Lewis and Templin residence halls. KU students distributing candy will have Halloween decorations posted on their door. Scholarship hall students will join their residence hall friends to distribute candy.

Halloween in the Halls is sponsored by the Association of University Residence Halls and the All Scholarship Hall Council.

KU Student Housing offers three kinds of communities: residence halls, scholarship halls and apartment living with positive and academically focused environments. Student Housing offers leadership opportunities, community involvement and a trained and supportive staff.



How do you explore KU? Senior Dylan Fehl kicks up his feet and enjoys the shade outside Watson Library, unwinding and admiring the campus. He says it's key to balance long hours in the library with fun and relaxation. Even as a senior, Fehl says he is still discovering new and useful spots and resources on campus. Exploring KU is important to him because it opens up new doors. Fehl, from Hutchinson, Kansas, is studying for a double major in philosophy and history with a minor in leadership studies. During his time at this unique university – with its positive attitudes, friendliness and a place to call home – Fehl said KU has truly set him free.

Boy with autism benefits from KU student’s undergraduate research Two-year-old Mark’s first haircut in a salon was pretty traumatic. He screamed. He cried. His dad had to restrain him – Mark has autism and a haircut wasn’t part of his routine. But there’s a happy ending. The experience led KU senior Kristin Miller to seek an Undergraduate Research Award (see http://bit.ly/1xod9VT) to develop ways for children with developmental disabilities like Mark to learn how to accept routine health care treatment, such as going to the dentist — or even getting a buzz cut. Watch the video to see why it has been especially rewarding for Miller to help children like Mark.
