Adults and children are invited to dress in costumes, play games and feel the fun, fright and festivities of a safe, warm and well-lit alternative to traditional trick or treating.

Refueling for Finals
We know that finals are a stressful time for students, especially when juggling all of their other responsibilities. As a way of putting a little pep into your finals week, we offer snacks and refreshments to help you fuel and refuel for your exams. Refueling for Finals typically takes place a week or two before finals week each semester.
Winter Kids Fest
On this day, Goodwin University is the focus of kids crafts, music, hot chocolate and snacks, movies, face painting and family time. Break out of the winter blues and make memories with us.
Enjoy a day of thrilling roller coasters, waterslides and rides at Six Flags with your friends and family every June.
Fresh Check Day
Coping with stress is important for everyone – especially when facing the responsibilities of college. Fresh Check Day is a chance for Goodwin University students to be educated on reducing the stigma around mental health issues, access helpful resources and learn positive coping techniques in fun, safe and creative setting.
It doesn’t stop there! The Office of Student Engagement hosts a variety of other programs throughout the year. Keep an eye out in your Goodwin University email inbox for additional information.
