Campus Chapters’ Halloween Events In the spirit of fun, several of our ASNC Campus Chapters held or were involved in October Halloween activities. Our Campus Chapters consist of talented, caring, and passionate student volunteers who work closely with local ASNC staff to make a difference in the lives of individuals with autism and their families. In addition to doing service projects, Campus Chapter members plan recreational events, provide respite, mentor to college students with ASD, raise funds for ASNC programs, and spread autism awareness.
