Too old for trick-or-treating? Here’s some alternatives

Even if society tells us not to trick or treat anymore, college students should still be able to have fun for Halloween. Here is a list of ways for you to do just that:


Kansas Zombie Hunters

When: 6:30 p.m. to midnight, Oct. 31

Where: 7727 NE 36th St, Newton

Admission: $20

Ever wanted to test out your survival skills in the likelihood of a zombie apocalypse? Here’s a chance to do it with paint.

Not a paintball veteran? Don’t worry. All the zombie-slaying takes place from the back of a moving trailer with mounted paintball guns, and extra precautions are taken to ensure no hunters are shot.


Spooktacular Halloween Party

When: 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Oct. 31

Where: Ahlberg Hall Lobby (2nd Floor)

Guests who arrive in their Halloween costumes will be entered in a drawing for a special prize. This is a great way to spend your afternoon with friends while supporting fellow students and a great cause.
