MTSU to Welcome Trick-or-Treaters this Month

Trick or Treat on MTSU's Greek Row this Thursday, Oct. 26; or at the Lady Raiders' "Treats and Hoops" event next Monday, Oct. 30.

Goblins, ghouls and ghosts (oh my!) will find treats galore at Middle Tennessee State University’s free upcoming Halloween happenings.

Greek Row treats

MTSU’s annual Trick or Treat on Greek Row will be held Thursday, Oct. 26 from 5 – 7 p.m. in front of the sorority houses at the corner of Rutherford Boulevard and Alumni Drive.

Children ages 12 and younger are welcome and encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes. There will be a variety of games for children to play at the houses and lots of candy to grab.

Guests are asked to park in the lot across the street. There is no charge for parking and there is a crosswalk where families can safely access campus by foot.

The event is sponsored by the College Panhellenic Council with support from MTSU’s sororities and fraternities. The council is MTSU’s largest women’s organization, comprised of six sorority chapters under the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life in the Center for Student Involvement and Leadership.

Treats and Hoops

The Lady Raiders Basketball Team will face off against the University of the Cumberlands Lady Patriots at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 30 in Murphy Center (2650 Middle Tennessee Blvd.).

To kick off the season, the team is hosting “Treats and Hoops” trick or treat event starting at 5:30 p.m., just before the game.
