ACES Film Festival Wows Moviegoers

ACES Film Festival Wows Moviegoers

I don’t often find myself settling in for a film screening – complete with a bag of freshly popped popcorn – in the Heritage Room of the ACES Library. But there I was last Friday, along with 80 or so ACES faculty members, staff, and students. We were there to take in the launch of a series of new videos geared to undergraduate study opportunities.

Each two-minute video features students and faculty sharing the many opportunities available to students, both during their time in the department and after they graduate with a degree from ACES. Each video was compelling in its own way – the spokespeople were uniquely charming and enthusiastic, and the collective array of options available for research, classes, and future jobs was simply astounding. I’m many years out from graduating with my undergraduate degree, but the videos made me want to re-enroll.

Hosts Prasanta Kalita, associate dean of academic programs, and Erik Johnson, the new director of undergraduate recruitment, distributed surveys to the audience so we could note the things we liked best about each video. I had a couple of favorites, but I hate to give them away… Luckily, you can decide for yourself! So, pop up a bag of popcorn, sit back, and click below.
