The Porter Hen­derson Library and the MSAP on Oct. 31 host­ed ASU’s first Trunk-or- Treat event in the Houston Harte University Center spine and lobby.

The event offered free candy and a multitude of games and activities for families to enjoy. Members of the community could attend this event free of charge.

“We have our Greek Life and a bunch of our other Student Organi­zations here,” said Aaron Espinoza, MSAP inclusion and engagement leader. “It’s a really good mix of people coming together to make this work.”

Some of the other organizations present were Sigma Tau Delta and Kap­pa Delta Pi.

Maria Atkerson, Kappa Delta Pi member, said they played tic-tac-toe with the kids.

“We have hacky sacks, some are red and some are orange, and we toss them onto the floor,” she said. “If they don’t want to play, then they just get a piece of candy.”

She said she was excited to be a part of Trunk-or-Treat.

“I love it, and I’m glad I get to wear my cos­tume,” Atkerson said. “I think it’s nice that we’re doing this in a safe envi­ronment. It’s interactive and you get to meet a lot of people.”

One community member said she was glad ASU put on the event.

“This is really nice,” she said. “I’m glad it’s indoors, because it’s re­ally cold outside. It’s very inviting and there are a lot of activities for my kids. I’m definitely coming back next year.”
