BEMIDJI — Trick-or-treating returned to the residence halls at Bemidji State on Monday in full force after a two-year hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Residents in BSU’s Birch, Linden, Oak and Tamarack Halls placed orange “Trick or Treat” tags on their doors to alert attendees that they were participating in the event and handed out goodies from 5 to 7 p.m. on Halloween.
