On Friday, November 1st 2013, the WVU section of SWE participated in Trunk-or-Treat, an event that was held by the Institute of Industrial Engineering (IIE). The event was inside and outside of WVU’s Coliseum from 4:30 to 7:00 pm. The setup and preparations started before the kids and parents came over at 5.30 pm. It was a nice event to celebrate Halloween with the kids around campus.
For Trunk-or-Treat this year, SWE teamed up with NSBE (National Society of Black Engineers) and SPACE (Student Partnership for the Advancement of Cosmic Exploration). Every organization was encouraged to wear costumes and make decorations, and we agreed on using “101 Dalmatians” as our theme. About 20 volunteers from our group passed out 1,000+ pieces of candy. The children were very excited to grab candies in their cute costumes. At 7 pm, the event was done, the candy was gone, and we wrapped up everything. The event went very well and we look forward to participating next year!
