Trunk-or-Treat is a service event geared toward UMSL families and the surrounding community. It takes place on the Saturday before Halloween (if Halloween falls on a Saturday, it takes place on that day). This year's event is on October 27 from 12 p.m.-2 p.m. in the MSC Garage South (on North Campus). The attendants will enjoy various activity and informational booths, followed by “trunk-or-treating,” which means they go from trunk to trunk getting treats! UMSL student organizations, departments/offices, and individuals can provide trunks (including treats), or create an activity booth. Departments and offices are also welcome to share materials they may serve the needs of community members. Started in 2010, this program has grown from 75 children to nearly 400 attending. Prizes for the best trunk and costume (student, staff, or faculty member) are on the line. 

UMSL student organizations, offices, and departments can register to participate from September 17 until 5 p.m. on October 19 at
