While attending EMU, Fegel was a lab instructor for the geology department and a manager/climbing instructor at Planet Rock Climbing Gym in Ann Arbor. He has received a bachelor of science degree as a professional geologist.

Fegel was awarded the 2011-2012 Outstanding Undergraduate for his department at EMU. While attending field camp in Jackson Hole, Wyo. last summer, a geology graduation requirement, through the University of Michigan (U of M), he attained a 4.0 for the class and was nominated to represent U of M with an internship through the United States Geological Survey (USGS).
