(Charleston, IL) – Eastern Illinois University campus residence halls and its Greek Court communities invite community members to attend EIU’s upcoming Halloween celebrations.
Several events are being hosted on campus. They include:
Friday, October 26 and Saturday, October 27
- Pemberton Hall will play host to the Middleton Manor Haunted House from 8 to 11 p.m. each evening. The $2-per-person fee will help raise money for the HOPE—East Central Illinois organization, which empowers domestic abuse victims to live independent, non-violent lives by leveraging programs focusing on housing, outreach, prevention and education. Please note: This annual event is open to all, but may prove a bit scary for younger community members.
