Residence halls to sponsor annual Halloween event

Tue, 10/22/2013

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.



Jaclyn Carpenter, a junior studying American Studies, took a moment after finishing her finals to wander around Marvin Grove — know the feeling? But Jaclyn told us her semester was a good one. Her favorite class this year? Jewish American Literature, "because professor Cheryl Lester really knows how to engage with her classes." This made us want to know: What was your favorite class and why? Jaclyn added some advice: “You're only on this campus for four years, so take any free time you have to explore all the unique wonders it has." We love that idea, Jaclyn. #exploreKU

Show us your crimson and blue holiday decorations for a chance to be featured next week!
Curiosity sparks KU paleontologist Chris Beard’s quest for man’s ancient cousins When he’s not scrutinizing ancient primate fossils in his KU lab, world-renowned paleontologist Chris Beard (http://bit.ly/1w3TQSj) is out stalking human evolutionary ancestors in remote corners of Libya, Turkey, China, Myanmar, Kazakhstan, Cambodia, Egypt, Tunisia, or Kenya. Beard, who came to KU as a Foundation Distinguished Professor, has a passion for being out in the middle of nowhere and making a discovery — “There’s nothing better than that. It’s fabulous.”
