Trick-or-Treaters Rush Columbia Hall

Happy Halloween! For the annual Columbia Hall Halloween event, EC welcomed nearly one thousand children to Trick-or-Treat throughout the dorm and brave the spooky haunted house created in the main lounge. EC offers this community service each year, with no charge. More than 200 pounds of candy was donated by the residents of Columbia Hall, faculty, and administrators of Elmira College for the event. Even with this much candy, volunteers ran out twice, and had to make two candy runs to keep up with demand! The trick-or-treaters looked great; the best outfit of the night, hands down, was a duo dressed as the Mario brothers. There were even a few dressed as Michael Jackson!

Columbia Hall Resident Life Coordinator Amber Wing ’09 would like to thank the more than fifteen students and administrators who helped out with the haunted house, and all of her residents who volunteered to hand out so much candy for the record-setting three-hour Halloween event!
