Eigenmann Hall was kind enough to open its doors to Circles and Head Start families for a massive Halloween celebration on Wednesday night. Residents decorated their floor lounges with what had to have been miles of fake cobwebs and dozens of pumpkins, skeletons, and black cats. RA guides took groups of Circles and Head Start families on a spooky tour from lounge to lounge, where costumed residents led our kids in all kinds of Halloween-themed activities. Some popular favorites included pumpkin-bowling, face-painting, pin-the-hat-on-the-witch, and pumpkin-decorating. The whole tour wound its way from floor to floor, back to the game room on the first floor, where RAs served cake and awarded a prize for the best costume.
Dozens of Circles and Head Start families made it out for the celebration, helping to make it a rousing success. The evening was a great chance for our kids to get a look inside the world of an IU student (my favorite moment of hushed awe came from a toddler as we walked toward our fourth or fifth lounge of the evening: “People live here!”)
Thanks to the Eigenmann RAs, Leadership Team, and residents for inviting us into their home to celebrate Halloween together!
