As Halloween drew near, ABAC’s Phi Theta Kappa Chapter, Omega Delta, updated its annual “Trick R’ Treat” walk to accommodate the Covid-19 pandemic. The “Trick R’ Treat” walk was originally for ABAC families to have a fun and safe Halloween night. Omega Delta works with the administrative staff to turn their offices into haunted dens filled with candy and treats. The chapter then creates a map for the families to work their way through participating offices. Omega Delta’s members then meet with the costumed families at the Stallion statue to guide them through the walk.
The event is a collaboration between students and staff, who do more than just supply candy; they also dress in costumes and decorate the area to give the families the authentic Halloween experience here on campus.
Due to Covid-19, ABAC closed its campus to families and the normal event was instead replaced with the “Trick R’ Treat” Drive.
ABAC families were able to drive in front of Tift Hall where students were dressed in costume ready to hand the children a goodie bag filled with treats.
“I wasn’t sure we could manage this year, but thanks to the support of ABACs unbelievably generous administrative staff my office is stacked with candy and treats” Charlotte Klesman, a professor associated with Omega Delta, said regarding the events uncertainty due to COVID-19. “Our chapter has been working with ABAC’s Phi Theta Kappa chapter in Bainbridge, Alpha Gamma Epsilon, to organize our Trick or Treat Drive Up and we want to recognize their support by sending treat bags to their chapter for ABAC’s Bainbridge campus parents.” The event is took place on October 30 and also featured a costume contest for Omega Delta members.
