The event opened up with a musical performance concert by college musicians and ensembles.  The groups played several Halloween pieces.

“It was definitely a great experience,” FEA member Nate Pepper said.  “It kept my mindset in place of going  into music performance as a career.”

Afterwards they participated in a scavenger hunt around the campus.

“I had a great time time leading the kids around the campus and playing in the scavenger hunt,” FEA member Riley Key said.

The students were also able to meet with various professors from campus who spoke about course options at the University of Montevallo.

“I got participate in the robotics class,” FEA member Amanda Buttgereit said.  “It was interesting to see the kids working with all different types of electronics.  You could tell they really enjoyed it.”
