A longtime tradition established by students in the late 1980s, Trick-or-Treating on the Lawn is not only a highly anticipated event for the University each year, it is also open to and eagerly awaited by children and families from the local community.
This year's event will be held on Wednesday, October 31 from 5:00-7:00 p.m.
