Events @ The Residence Hall

The Residence Hall @ Brooklyn College held our first scary movie night last week Thursday. Many students showed up and received free pop corn and beverages. Students were given the opportunity to select one of three horror movies to view [Ju-on The Grudge, Insidious, Saw]. The students chose to watch Insidious because they heard that it was a good horror movie. Judging by the attendance at the end of the movie, I am guessing that the movie certainly lives up to its reputation.
The scary movie night was a part of the Residence Hall @ Brooklyn College's ongoing weekly events. We have successfully staged an event every week since the beginning of the semester. So far, we have had 2 movie nights, a self defense night & an open mic night. All of our events are supported by the students that reside in the residence hall as well as students from multiple campuses in New York.

In staging the events we discovered something unique about our building. Every semester we always end up with a handful of [very] talented students.  I am certain that one day soon, someone from our building will become a star. There is so much potential here that it is most likely inevitable. What is even more impressive is that the students manage to keep a balanced ratio between school and leisure. Residents who maintain such a balance generally attain a level of maturity associated with living away from home. We try to be as mindful of this balance as possible and reinforce positive aspects of each.
