Residence halls open for Halloween fun and scares

Bemidji State University’s residence halls will once again be open for trick-or-treaters on Halloween.

Oak, Pine, Tamarack, Linden and Birch halls will be participating from 5-7 p.m. The front desks for each hall will have a list of rooms participating in the trick-or-treat night, and participating rooms also will have orange tags on their doors.

Many floors in the residence halls also will be decorated for Halloween, and most lobbies and lounges in the buildings will feature games and prizes for small children, along with apple cider and snacks.

Trick or treating in the Bemidji State residence halls allows families to celebrate Halloween in a safe, warm environment protected from the weather.
