Students stage a haunted house event for young and old each Halloween. The public has a night of frightful fun, and the proceeds benefit local charities.

The entry fee on Friday and Saturday is $6 or three canned goods per person. The fee on discount Thursday is $5 or two canned goods per person. The food collected will be donated to the Kalamazoo Gospel Mission while the money collected will go to Big Brothers Big Sisters.
