This year’s Halloween Dance, presented by the Residence Hall Association (RHA), occurs on Oct. 26, 2017.

The event will begin at 9 p.m. in the Community Building, of River Crossing Student Housing. This dance is what many students are calling the biggest social event of the year, being that it is open to the entire IU South Bend student body and there is no cost to attend, but students must bring their IDs.

The RHA will provide free snacks and drinks for everyone. Students are also encouraged to dress up and compete in the annual costume contest where multiple winners will receive prizes for best costume in different categories.

RHA wants to remind all who participate that costumes should adhere to social appropriateness. Lazarus Avila, the freshman Riverview House representative, said all IUSB students should attend this year’s dance.

“We’ve been planning this dance for a few weeks now and I think it’s going to be a good time. And it’s a great opportunity to be social and get to know the other kids on campus,” said Avila.

Students must present a Crimson Card to enter. Students can RSVP to the event on Titan Atlas.

Also, this month the RHA, along with the Office of Student Life, Titan Productions, the Student Government Association, and various club volunteers, will sponsor Boo to You. This event is open to all IUSB students, faculty members, staff and members of the South Bend community.

Boo to You is an annual safe trick-or-treating environment for children in the community. Organizers hope to introduce the children and their parents to our safe and friendly campus.

Avila said, “[T]here will be games and activities for the kids as well as a ton of candy for them to take home.”

The RHA is still looking for volunteers to help pass out candy and to run the games and activities during the event.

Boo to You will be from 4 to 7 p.m. on Halloween.
