The Minnesota School of Business in Moorhead held its second annual ‘Trunk or Treat’ event in the campus parking lot on Halloween, inviting people from across the communities of Fargo, Moorhead, and West Fargo to participate. The two-and-a-half hour event brought dozens of children to campus to meet staff members, faculty members, and students.
Almost twenty different trunks were decorated in various themes, from the Wizard of Oz and Star Wars, to Christmas and even a tribute to the band ‘Jem’! Minnesota School of Business students also brought their families to campus to participate in the fun.
“It was fun to have so many kids come out with their parents to see the campus, do some trick-or-treating, and see all the different costumes,” said Campus Director, Melinda Rustad. “It is turning into one of the biggest Halloween events in the community.”
In the campus commons, some members of the admissions team operated a photo booth, where children received a picture with their costume in front of a halloween backdrop. There was also cookie decorating, a candy walk, and popcorn available.
“The parents loved the photo booth,” said admissions representative, Jared Bledsoe. “To get a picture of their kids in costume like that really meant a lot to them.”
Veterinary technology students, paralegal students, and massage therapy students also decorated trunks.
Deejay Luci Black from Popster 104.7 FM was live on campus with a remote broadcast promoting the event and played music in the parking lot.
“This is so much fun and I’m so glad I was here for this,” Black said. “I hope to be back next year and we can help promote this event even more.”
The campus is already making plans for 2013 to include more trunks and even better themes.
“We’re just getting started,” said Director of Admissions Angelique Goulet. “Wait until everyone sees what we are going to do next year!”
