Students in Assistant Professor Leah Shafer’s Media and Society class will stage a lavish, red carpet Academy Awards viewing party on Sunday, Feb. 26, at 8 p.m. in the Vandervort Room of the Scandling Campus Center.
Sponsored by the Media and Society Department, the night will be filled with glamorous fun. Students are encouraged to dress up and strut in on the red carpet, getting their photo taken with a replica Oscar. Students can also vote for their Oscar picks and the winners will get to take home their own golden Oscar.
The Academy Awards will be broadcast live on Vandervort’s mega-screen. There will also be movie theater-style snacks and beverages to enjoy while watching the show. In past years, more than 100 students have attended the event and this year it is expected to be the largest yet.
