Although I couldn’t find any Halloween photos on the CSU Archives & Special Collections website (and the few on the city Archive were a bit too small), I still came across several instances of students (and faculty) dressing up in costumes for various events.
The May Fête was a women’s dance pageant.
This description of the Co-ed Prom is from the 1925 Silver Spruce (Colorado Aggie yearbook).
There is at least one time that the girls demonstrate their independence of man in a social way. It is at the Co-ed Prom, an annual event of each collegiate year. During this night of revelry all Aggie girls are playmates. Striking costumes and make-ups always add to the spirit of the occasion. It is sometimes hinted that even the functions of Paris could show no more variety. Generally each class prepares a stunt in which the versatile abilities of the girls shine forth. Occasionally some few envious persons outside the category of guests have peered down on the merriment. However, last year Dean Johnson and Dr. Lory were on the ground early to persuade this self invited masculine element that it was classed as undesirable. As it is a feminine Mecca, reports to the outside world nec- essarily come from the girls themselves.

Information on the May Fete was hard to find. But I located a mention of it in this homecoming anniversary page on the CSU website.
