The party has been a Fitchburg State tradition for about 25 years, originating for children of faculty, staff and students at the University. The festivities are now open to all, with activities like pin the nose on the pumpkin, pumpkin bowling, face-painting, crafts and musical chairs featured on the ground floor of Thompson Hall, while the basement is transformed into haunted tunnels.

“I am so proud of the Greek fraternities and sororities for putting on this event,” said Shane Franzen, associate director of student development. “This is a tradition that has stood the test of time and it’s really great to see this group of men and women pull together to put on such a marvelous event for Fitchburg State and her community.”

The event is organized by the University’s Sigma Sigma Sigma, Phi Sigma Sigma and Alpha Sigma Tau sororities, and its Sigma Pi and Sigma Tau Gamma fraternities.
