Highlights from the Event: Conversation On Movies

Students discuss film at the first monthly Conversation Event for October in the Restaurant in Building 4, Hawk’s Nest.

The first Conversation Event for the month of October, sponsored by the Christian Conversation Club, included loads of interesting discussion about students’ favorite movies and why they appreciate them. One topic was whether the students attending prefered movies with a lot of action or movies that are more dramatic, with a heavy focus on character, or those with a little of each. In addition, there were some great conversations about how the films discussed (and films in general) make an impact on our lives.

The event also featured an exciting game of Kahoot. Kahoot is a trivia game that can be projected on a screen. To play Kahoot, students can use their phones to click the right answer out of four choices and their answers will be projected on the screen. Points are collected for each round and whoever gets the most answers correct wins. For this event, the group answered trivia questions about movies and the winner received a Best Buy gift card.
