It’s Talloweek! Trick or Treat
That Was Then…
I would race home from school so my mom could put together some sort of costume for me then rush to meet my friends to go trick-or-treating Somehow, by the time I had my own kids, Halloween included much more; carving pumpkins, putting up decorations, more formal costumes, and, of course, trick-or-treating throughout our neighborhood, but not without a parent escort.
This is Now…
Halloween traditions in college are, well, a far cry from the pumpkin carving, candy apple making gatherings we had in our driveway before the kids started their trick-or-treating. Many places, including frats, will have parties – all week. Halloween week, I’m not going to lie, gives a whole new meaning to the BOO in Booze. Keep in mind FSU is not the only college in town either. Due to unfortunate events in the past though, there will surely be a watchful eye on our students, which is actually a good thing.
It may not be a bad idea to remind your students of all the nice parts of Halloween and to keep their good judgment about them. A hint to be sure they have all their work done before they go out is wise too. Be sure they are familiar with the Night Nole and never ride alone. The bus stops at all the prime locations. Uber will be at a premium.
On a Lighter Note….
FSU’s Circus, which is on our bucket list of things to experience at least once while at FSU, puts on a Halloween themed show. This year’s shows are on October 18th, 19th, 24th and 27th. Student tickets are free.
