Ghosts and goblins of all ages are invited to an evening of fearsome fun during Florida Tech’s Treat or Treat 2017. The family-friendly Halloween festivities will take place in the Residence Quad on Sunday, October 29th from 2-5 p.m. with candy, games, Halloween activities, and three theatrical haunted houses.
Each haunted house is themed after a movie or television show. This year’s themes are Beauty and the Beast, Guardians of the Galaxy, Wonder Woman, The Walking Dead, and a kid’s house for children five and under. Each house is scarier than the last but all ages are welcomed in each. RA’s from Reslife serve as actors and tour guides through each house.
Treat or Treat is hosted by Florida Tech’s Department of Residence Life (Reslife). Florida Tech’s Reslife staff is composed of nearly sixty resident assistants (RA’s) who are tasked with maintaining residence hall safety in all six of Florida Tech’s housing areas, performing educational programs, and serving as campus resources for the general student population. These RA’s are all undergraduate Florida Tech students and are led by five Resident Directors (RD’s) who are all graduate students charged with leading each respective housing areas RA staff. Residence Life is tasked with conducting three “annual” programs as they are called. Annual programs pool the resources of all Reslife staff members from each housing area due to their size and scope. Treat or Treat is one of these annual programs.
Treat or Treat is an annual Halloween program that has been around for over a decade. The program is unique among Reslife programs because it is really catered to the general public. At its core, Treat or Treat is meant to provide local families with the opportunity of a safe and fun Halloween experience.
Treat or Treat is held on the Florida Tech campus within the Residence Quad on the north end of campus at 2725 Country Club Rd. in Melbourne.
Parking will be in two lots across from the main event, which will be denoted by signs and event workers. Should parking become filled within these two lots a third parking area will be available by the Evans Library on the east side of campus next to Babcock Street.
The event is free and open to the public. The whole family is welcome as it is appropriate for all ages. Laughs, screams, and spooks are guaranteed.
