Truett McConnell University (TMU) recently made the difficult decision to cancel the annual Treats at Truett event initially scheduled for October 31, 2020.

While the university regrets to inform the community of the cancellation, the decision was made in an effort to maintain the health and safety standards in place in order to combat the spread of COVID-19.

“We are sad we won’t be able to host Treats at Truett this year,” said Director of Student Development Jonathan Morris. “It is a long-standing tradition of Truett McConnell and we love serving our community through this event. Our students, faculty, and staff will miss it this year. It is our hope to bring Treats at Truett back better than ever in 2021.”

The family-friendly event is held each year on the TMU campus and features trick-or-treating, smores, hayrides, carnival games, magic show, and more.

The community’s involvement at the annual event is one of the highlights of the fall semester. According to the Office of Student Services, Treats at Truett will be back next year, assuming it is healthy and safe to do so.
