Western Technical College welcomes trick-or-treaters to residence hall

LA CROSSE (WKBT) — Halloween started a little early for kids visiting Western Technical College Thursday night.

Students at the residence hall threw a Halloween bash with games, a scavenger hunt and plenty of candy.

Student life leaders say it’s great fun for kids, but it also allows the students in the dorms to feel connected to where they live.

“They really love it,” said Student Life Coordinator Leah Durnin Hoover. “All I’ve heard today is how much they love seeing the kids in costumes, how much they love giving back to the community and [they’re] really beginning to feel like they’re a part of the La Crosse Community.”

The event was free, but attendees were encouraged to bring non-perishable food items for the Cavalier Cupboard.

Western Tech partnered with campus group The Space, as well as community non-profit Hope Restores.
