ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - Sunday night's Academy Awards featured performances from Barbra Streisand, Jennifer Hudson and Adele, but on Monday afternoon, students at Ex'treme Institute by Nelly got their own surprise when the hip-hop artist stopped by to say hello.

The school offers a really cool opportunity for students to learn the music business and starting today the college has two new associate degree programs and two new diploma programs.

His name isn't just on the sign; this is something Nelly is very passionate about.

"Unique is an understatement, I think. This is groundbreaking; this is history. We were able to come up with something that historically that cannot be matched in this area right now. The only thing that can let us down right now is students (sic) not taking full advantage of the opportunity that's before them," Nelly explains.
