Movie on the Hill: A look into the SAB sponsored event, featuring Avengers Endgame.

On September 13, 2019 the Student Activities Board (SAB) hosted a Movie on the Hill event.  It was located on the hill by Kea Guffin, and they were playing the movie Avengers: Endgame. The movie was projected on a huge screen, students brought blankets to sit on as there are limited picnic tables, and there was free popcorn.  

In previous years, SAB has played Black Panther, Wonder Woman, Finding Dory, and Mockingjay Part I.  Avengers: Endgame is the last Avengers movie and is the fourth movie after The Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Avengers: Infinity War.  It was first released on April 26, 2019. 

A plot summary provided by Vocal.Media states, “Adrift in space with no food or water, Tony Stark sends a message to Pepper Potts as his oxygen supply starts to dwindle. Meanwhile, the remaining Avengers — Thor, Black Widow, Captain America and Bruce Banner — must figure out a way to bring back their vanquished allies for an epic showdown with Thanos — the evil demigod who decimated the planet and the universe.” 

This event is hosted every September, which is a good time because it is still warm outside and everybody is settling into the semester.  The purpose of SAB is to plan events to get students out and socializing. Their mission statement on Eastern’s website states, “The mission of Eastern University’s Student Activities Board (SAB) is to create, organize and implement a variety of co-curricular activities and events in an eff ort to provide social, recreational, spiritual, cultural, and developmental programs in college life for the Eastern University student body.”     

SAB also hosts many fun events including Coffeehouses and the Spring Banquet.  These activities help to break up the tedious days of classes and work that seem to drag on in an endless cycle.  They are a great opportunity to de-stress and do something fun.
