Klare ArmstrongNorth campus trick-or-treat is a UW-Stout tradition that has been happening longer than the participants have been alive,” said Klare Armstrong, Residence Life coordinator. “Every year we look forward to opening our doors to the families and children of our community and giving them an opportunity to trick-or-treat in a unique, safe and warm environment within the residence halls.”
