The five residence halls are on Broadway Street between First and Fourth avenues. Red Cedar Hall is on Second Street, between First and Third avenues.

UW-Stout students will be on hand in the main lobby of each building to greet and direct children and parents. The halls will feature games and activities, such as ghost fishing, pumpkin bowling and a cutout board for photos.

Student residents also will be handing out traditional candy treats and trinkets.

Last year’s event drew more than 500 local children; more than 1,100 students live in the north campus residence halls.

During the festivities, the residence halls also will hold a food drive to benefit the food pantry Stepping Stones of Dunn County. Participants are encouraged to bring a canned food item to donate.
