11-01-2013

Fifteen members of the Global Science Partners organization within the College of Science paid a spooky visit to Cambridge Estates in Lafayette during the apartment and townhouse complex's annual Halloween bash aimed for kids.

The Science students ran several games and passed out pounds and pounds of sweet, sweet candy.

The mix of Science students came from various majors as well as experience levels. About half were freshmen and the other half upperclassmen. About half the students were domestic and the other half international as well.

The Halloween event was a good bonding trip several miles off campus to the outskirts of Lafayette. The students worked together in entertaining sugar-fueled children in games and passing out candy.

The students encountered cute little witches, princesses, pirates, a skeleton, Thomas the Tank Engine, a fireman, a tiny lion and much more.

More than 100 children plus their parents or guardians filled the Cambridge Estates main office. Each room was like a station for kids to check out games and the candy stashes. Groups of two to four students manned each station.

The event was a positive experience for the students and the children. Volunteerism is a beyond the classroom way to ensure a College of Science student receives a complete education at Purdue.
