Many educational and co-curricular enriching programs were hosted by Illinois State’s Themed Living-Learning Communities in February.
Here is just one example of how we continue to cultivate learning while keeping a social interest.
Oscars viewing party
Residents of the Fine Arts floor came together to watch the Academy Awards, which recognizes the many talented artists that contribute to the field of animation, cinematography, visual effects, and original music through films that premiered within the previous year.
Throughout the night 42 residents attended the program to not only eat and watch the show, but to join the many discussions based around the event. The residents and the resident assistants (Caitlin Graham and Lauretta Schaefer) of the Fine Arts floor were able to host a multitude of discussions related to their artistic interests as they examined the decisions to give awards to certain artists. Participants discussed what it would take to one day become an Academy Award-winning artist, using examples from ceremony.
The small group discussions helped residents connect with an event they feel passionate about and also made them feel their opinions were valued by others.
Below are some photos of the Oscars viewing party along with other programs in February.
