Halloween Safety Tips for College Students

Your little trick or treater is all grown up and off to college. Help keep them safe by stressing a few of these Halloween safety tips.


Halloween as a child is fun. Kids trick or treated in groups door to door in familiar neighborhoods. They attended supervised parties.

Halloween at college is a different. Itís when some students dress up in racy costumes, that others may think of as an open invitation to take advantage. Kids gather in basements that might not meet fire safety codes. Alcohol consumption is an issue.
