Campus organizations have funneled Halloween spirit into events throughout the past week that incorporate both charitable fundraising and community outreach.
Kappa Kappa Kappa fraternity’s annual haunted house and Dartmouth for UNICEF’s Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF events focus on connecting the College with Upper Valley residents, while GlobeMed’s cupcake and pie delivery raised money to support victims of ethnic conflict in Thailand, according to organization representatives.
Tri-Kap’s event, scheduled for Saturday afternoon, seeks to foster student and community interaction, Tri-Kap President Paul Wagdalt ’13 said.
“We really cherish spending time with kids from the Upper Valley community, and they always have such a great time, which is so rewarding for us,” he said.
In addition to the haunted house itself, activities will include face painting, pumpkin painting and bobbing for apples, Tri-Kap philanthropy chair Kyle Bojanowski ’14 said.
The event is the product of joint efforts among the College’s Greek community, Wagdalt said.
“There’s always such a great turnout and so much support, especially from sororities,” he said. “They help out with so much, ranging from setup and cleanup to manning the haunted house or their own activity stations.”
Community events promote a positive image of fraternities and sororities, according to Bojanowski, who said that students outside the Greek system often forget about the philanthropic aspect of Greek life.
The following Greek members of the Class of 2013 with the highest cumulative grade point averages were inducted as Junior Members in Course into the Phi Beta Kappa honor society’s Dartmouth Chapter in a public ceremony on Monday 29 October, 2012.
