On Wednesday, Oct. 31, the Sterling College Student Government Association held a Halloween-themed movie marathon in Cornerstone.

“We’re trying to have monthly events that kind of increase the community around Sterling. This seemed like a really quick and easy one,” SGA President Drake Koops said. “This was kind of a quick, easy, no-budget way to do things and have people as they kind of walk in and out.”

Selecting the movies to play was somewhat of a challenge given Sterling College’s strong Christian values.

“Most of us in SGA, we don’t like scary movies so we were like, ‘Scary movies that aren’t scary,'” Koops said.

SGA’s itinerary of movies included Ghostbusters (1984) at 11 a.m., Hocus Pocus at 1 p.m., Monster House at 3 p.m., and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone at 5 p.m.

SGA plans on doing more events like this in the future. Their focus is to promote the community on campus through events such as this one.

“We’ve talked about doing a more active event like we did the Fugitive across town and one that’s more passive like this,” Koops said. “Our biggest thing is we’re wanting to increase a sense of community like this is a kind of home for people to go to.”
