Classic Film Club
The Classic Film Club is an opportunity for LF students to gain a greater appreciation of cinema from the Golden Age of Hollywood. Students will analyze the film craft intensely through discussion of direction, acting, visuals, and plot development. In addition, students will also consider the genre of the film era during which it was made, and other factors in order to truly understand why the film is an American classic. The goals of the Club are to recognize why a certain film is considered a "classic", to appreciate great film-making and to supplement the humanities courses (History, English) here at LF.
The purpose of the College Club is to help students research their potential college choices and majors. In addition, we will help in understanding and researching financial aid opportunities and scholarships.
Please note: As the projects will be similar to last year, only new members will be accepted.
