JUNK IN THE TRUNK.  UTC's First Annual Halloween event for all area children, with free trick-or-treating snacks from the trunks of cars, 4-6 p.m. at First Tennessee Pavilion.  Everyone in the community is invited to bring their children to this fun, safe event. The event was created by the UTC Junior Panhellenic, a group of new members  from all campus sororities.  Many other student organizations are also involved, including: ACE, SGA, Freshmen Senate, Ultimate Frisbee Team, Chattanooga Singers, IFC, Panhellenic and donations of candy from UTC staff and faculty members.

Children under 12 years old dressed in Halloween costumes will receive free admission to the Mocs vs. Appalachian State football game, 6 p.m. at Finley Stadium, courtesy of the UTC Athletics Department.  $6 tickets will be available for their accompanying parents.

UTC students are admitted free with their ID cards.

Also on Saturday, if you don't get enough candy at Junk in the Trunk and you don't want to help the Mocs scare up a victory against Appy State, then come back to the University Center for the Black Student Alliance Halloween party. Beginning at 6 p.m., kids of all ages are invited to the Tennessee Room for games, candy, and a haunted house. Get creative with your costume!

Then on Tuesday, Nov. 2

Election Results Viewing Party.  The UTC University Center will be celebrating the election results from 8 p.m. to 12 a.m.  Free food, DJ, and viewing of the results on the huge screen in the University Center Auditorium.  The entire community is invited.

Also, earlier in the day, student groups will drive UTC students to the polls to ensure their votes are cast for the presidential election. The Association for Campus Entertainment (ACE), the UTC Political Science Club, Student Government Association (SGA) Freshmen Senate, University Honors Program (UHON), UTC Housing, and Student Development are among the sponsors for this event.
