Trick or Treat at Smith for Halloween

For some, especially the young, it’s the biggest holiday of the year, and why not—dressing up in funny or scary costumes, accepting handouts of candy and goodies and celebrating all things spooky.

Smith students invite the Halloween-spirited to don their eeriest garb and check out these holiday events.

Friday, October 31
Gillett Trick or Treating On Halloween, Gillett House will host trick-or-treating around the house from 3-4 p.m., followed by Halloween games from 4-5 p.m. Children of all ages are more than welcome! Contact Katherine Schneider at ext. 6901 for more info.

Saturday, November 1
Annual Quad Halloween from 1 to 3 p.m. The House Presidents' Association will host this annual party for the families of the Smith College and Northampton communities. There will be a variety of Halloween activities including pumpkin painting, bean bag toss, a feeling/sensation booth, cookie decorating, a haunted house, and more.

In a related event, the Association of Smith Pagans will conduct a Samhain ritual on Friday, October 31, at 8 p.m. in the Field House. Samhain is a celebration of the harvest's end and a time to acknowledge ancestors. No experience is required. Dress comfortably, but make sure that any clothing is candle safe. Please contact us at if you have questions.
