Hallowgreens Do’s and Don’ts

Hallowgreens is an annual unofficial St. Mary’s College of Maryland (SMCM) holiday. It celebrates Halloween. Most students who choose to participate dress-up in costume, and some do not. In order to ensure everyone’s safety, the Student Government Association (SGA) usually produces a list of “do’s and don’ts.” With permission from this year’s SGA, The Point News is publishing this year’s list online.

Courtesy of the SMCM SGA and Elizabeth Allnut, here are this year’s “Hallowgreens Do’s and Don’ts.”
