Peta2, the largest youth animal rights group in the world, set up an exhibit filled with different panels about animals and what they go through on factory farms.

"Every time you sit down and have a meal, it's not just a personal choice. That choice that you're making, every time that you sit down to a meal, or go grocery shopping, is affecting much more than just you," said Krista Metz.

Inside the tent were posters showing the similarity among animals and humans, methods of how chickens are confined and killed, life of a mother pig on a farm, and a six-minute video on animal cruelty.

"I think it's something that a lot of kids are probably going to go through, and see. It allows kids to formulate their own opinion and I think that's the main point with PETA and agriculture," said Devon Hatfield.

Some of the opinions were based on personal experiences.

"My dad had pigs for over 20 years, and I shoved cattle for 11 years. So, kind of seeing that was a little hurtful," said Gwen Wehmeyer.

Others, did their best to remind neutral.

"People should consider, go through stuff like this and kind of experience life through vegan's eyes and how other people see slaughter houses, and give things a chance," said Foster Miller.

Peta2's goal was to inform students about the food choices they can make, with the hopes they would give it a chance.
