Greek Community Invites Children to Greek or Treat
On Friday, Oct. 30, from 3-5 p.m. in Walnut Park, the six councils of the Syracuse University Greek community invite all SU faculty and staff members and their children to be a part of their annual Greek or Treat event.
Each year, the Interfraternity Council, Panhellenic Council, National Pan-Hellenic Council, National Association of Latino Fraternal Organizations, Multicultural Greek Council and Professional Fraternity Council invite children from local afterschool programs to the SU campus for trick or treating and fun, Halloween-themed activities.
“Greek or Treat is really one of our Greek community’s favorite events,” says Justina DeMott, assistant director of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs. “Our students always embrace this unique opportunity to put on a safe Halloween event for the children in our community. It’s a fun time for everyone and we want more people at the University to be a part of the festivities.”
This year, the Greek community is extending an invitation to all SU faculty and staff members and their children. At each of the 12 Greek houses surrounding Walnut Park, children will be able to enjoy activities such as face painting, piñatas, musical chairs, toilet paper mummy wrapping and more.
