The Student Activities Council is putting on an Eagle Cinema event, which will be a showing of the movie Loving, this Saturday, Feb. 11.  The movie will be shown at the Bannister Glasshouse in the Student Life Center at 9 p.m.  Popcorn and tissues will be provided.

Loving is about an interracial couple, Richard and Mildred Loving, who fell in love and married in 1958,” Coordinator of Programming and Service at the Office of Student Activities, Meredith Keating said.  “They grew up in Central Point, a small town in Virginia that was more integrated than surrounding areas in the American South. Yet, it was the state of Virginia, where they were making their home and starting a family, that first jailed and then banished them. Richard and Mildred then relocate with their children to the inner city of Washington, D.C., but the family ultimately tries to find a way back to Virginia.”

Keating believes that the move night will provide a great time for all.

“Attending a Student Activities Council Eagle Cinema event is a great, low pressure way to meet new people,” said Keating.  “It’s also really comfy to curl up in one of the Glasshouse chairs and watch a movie on a blow-up screen.”

Sophomore psychology/English major and event leader, Ally Vieira, also encourages students to come out and join the fun.

“It’s a great interracial love story that really accentuates what we are trying to remember during Black History Month and a big part of what Americans fought for,” said Vieira.  “Plus, there will be tons of movie theater popcorn to go around, so come to the Glasshouse and enjoy!”

Suggestions for future events can be emailed to studentactivitiescouncil@reinhardt.edu.

Student Activities invites students and local officers to Coffee with a Cop

Student Activities Council is hosting Coffee with a Cop, a breakfast for local officers to stop by campus and spend time with students. The goal of the event is to allow law enforcement and students to connect in a way they do not typically have the opportunity to do.

On Friday, Feb. 10, students will be given the ability to interact with local cops visiting from surrounding stations, along with Reinhardt’s public safety officers.

“Building relationships between law enforcement and the community is critical to all aspects of Public Safety. With this particular event, we hope to facilitate a platform where students have the opportunity to interact with local law enforcement in a relaxed environment.” said Director of Public Safety Jay Duncan. “Many of our students may not have had positive interactions with the police in the past, and this event, we believe, is a great opportunity to get to know the deputies who serve our campus.”

Freshman and Student Activities Council member Levi Cochran helped to invite law enforcement from Canton Police Department and Cherokee Sheriff’s Office. He believes this event will be a good opportunity for cops and students to communicate.

“I believe cops can gain a better understanding of how college students view their occupation, thus learning more about what the local community thinks of them as a whole,” Cochran said. “This can help officers interact with their community better and more efficiently.”

Duncan views this event as a way to achieve connections between students and law enforcement, stating that student who attend will be giving the chance to discuss anything from potential future careers in the field, Criminal Justice topics, or just have a casual conversation.

“A primary goal of virtually every law enforcement agency is improving community relations. Many leaders of the Cherokee Sheriff’s Office have expressed the desire to build relationships with our University,” said Duncan. “This event will serve as a positive step toward strengthening relationships between law enforcement and Reinhardt.”

Coffee with a Cop with be held in the Commuter Lounge, located on the bottom floor of Lawson, from 9 a.m.-11 a.m. and will be serving coffee and assorted breakfast foods. The event is open to all students and faculty to participate.
