A Halloween to Remember

A Halloween to Remember

Sodexo Food Services, the campus dining services for Fort Valley State University (FVSU), hosted a Halloween V.I.P. Costume party on Monday from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. for 50 students.  

The event was free of charge, but students had to RSVP in advance.

Guests went all out with their costumes as special appearances were made by late music legend, Ray Charles; famous 1990's music group, TLC; worldwide video game icon, Super Mario and famous detective, Sherlock Holmes.  Of course the night wouldn't have been complete without having them do impressions, which the audience enjoyed.
