Skidmore College

For sheer enthusiasm, there’s little that competes with a crowd of Skidmore’s costume-clad children celebrating Halloween on campus.

The celebration starts early, when the college students who reside in Skidmore’s North Woods and Scribner Village apartments distribute candy to visitors on the Sunday prior to Halloween. The Office of Residential Life co-sponsors the Village Treats program, held on Oct. 28 this year and which also included a pre-walk party at Falstaff’s, hosted by the group called Skidmore Education Taking Action.

On the actual holiday, Skidmore’s youngest students—those enrolled in the Early Childhood Center Preschool and the Greenberg Child Care Center—walk around campus accompanied by their teachers and Skidmore student helpers. They visit the offices of their parents and campus friends, and are generously rewarded with a wide selection of treats.

The annual tradition spreads the holiday spirit throughout the campus in a very special way.
