Who is sponsoring the event? The event is sponsored by UAA Club Council, UAA Student Clubs and Greek Life Office, the Student Union and Commuter Student Services Department, Kaladi Brothers, GCI, Coast Magazine, Bill's Distributing, and Pierce Cartwright.
Should we dress in costume? Of course, children love to dress up for Halloween.
Is the Haunted House scary? It is geared toward children 2-12 years old. The students will group together young children to go through the house together and scary factor will be adjusted based on the age group. They can even turn on the lights if requested.
Is this a new event this year? No, this event has over a 20-year history at UAA. This year, Trick or Treat Town has been cancelled so our event has benefitted from many community sponsors.
Where should we park? The Student Union has a free parking lot in front of the building.
Where is the Student Union? From Providence Drive, turn onto Seawolf Drive. Take a right at the stop sign. The Student Union is connected to the UAA Campus Bookstore. You can also enter the Student Union from the Wells Fargo Sports Complex.
