While we still love treats as college students (let’s be real — as college students, we’re partial to any free food) we have a little more freedom in deciding how to spend our Halloween here in Berkeley. You could hit up frat row or have a low-key night with friends. If you want to get out of Berkeley, however, check out this list of free alternatives in San Francisco.
