Welcome!

EventMedley is a tool that enables students to organize information about programs, events, and student organizations. It is maintained by the collaborative effort of EVMS students who meet a modest level of technological competency, and catering to a practical and spam-sensitive audience. New users start here.

Looking for New Haunted Hallway Leadership

·         Please consider taking a study break to apply to be part of the Haunted Hallway leadership team! This is one of the largest philanthropic events at EVMS that occurs every year for Halloween. It provides a safe environment for local children and their families to trick-or-treat and celebrate Halloween.

·         There are games, crafts, candy, a haunted house and more! It’s a great opportunity to gain leadership experience & a wonderful event to support. Plus, it’s tons of fun!

·         Leadership involves coordinating buses/permission slips with the elementary schools, organizing volunteers from EVMS/Maury High School as well as ordering supplies & facilitating donations.

·         I’m asking for applications to be in by 2/27. Please do not hesitate to e-mail me, servidlr@evms.edu, with questions or schedule a time to meet in person to discuss the event further.
