UPDATE: To minimize the spread of flu in the community, the 2009 Safehouse announced below has been cancelled.

The Michigan Technological University residence halls will welcome trick-or-treaters Saturday, Oct. 31, from 5 to 8 p.m. for their annual Safehouse.

Residents decorate their halls, and student guides lead visitors on each tour. Each hall has a unique tour, and routes are broken down by age group: Fun (0-7 years), Spooky (5-13 years) and Scary (10-15 years).

Other fun activities include Spooky Sporty Games and having your photo taken in McNair Hall and free cotton candy in Douglass Houghton Hall.

Parking is available on campus; just follow the signs.

For more information, go to or contact the Inter-Residence Hall Council at 906-523-2553 or
