On Tuesday night, Student University Programmers (SUP) hosted “The Shrekoning” and showed “Shrek 2” in the Student Center ballroom during their weekly free movie night. Tuesday nights are movie nights at Rowan University.
Students were invited to attend this week’s ‘View n’ Chew’ event, which includes free food and a raffle, in addition to the screening of the film.
This included popcorn, waffles and a make-your-own ice cream bar. The raffle ticket gave students a chance to win Shrek-themed prizes at the end of the night.
Once the attendees settled in with their snacks, the lights dimmed and the introduction of DreamWorks lit up the room. It was obvious that the film, released in 2004, brought a sense of childhood nostalgia to the students. The audience sang familiar songs and laughed at the funny moments.
After the film, the raffle winners were drawn to win one of many Shrek-themed prizes. There were plush dolls of Shrek and Donkey, a latex mask of Shrek’s face, a knit cap with attached ogre ears, and a Shrek coloring book.
“It was a lot of fun. I’m glad I went,” junior Brianna Smith said. .”
According to SUP’s mission statement, their goal is to “provide Rowan University students with an array of diverse, educational and entertaining programs.”
If you missed “The Shrekoning,” the next SUP movie night is scheduled for October 5, whereregarding “A Quiet Place II” wwill be shown. It will take place at 9:15 p.m. in the Student Center Ballroom. Any student wishing to attend will need to show their Rowan ID to enter.
