Athens, OH 21 October 2020 –
On October 15 the engineering ambassadors hosted their monthly social event, in this case…a movie! In efforts to connect the ambassadors we hosted a virtual watch party for what was planned to be a football game. However, the votes were cast, and the majority wanted to watch a Halloween themed movie instead. We scrolled through Netflix and decided on an Adam Sandler movie called “Hubie Halloween”. Anyone with a Netflix account was able to watch the movie via Netflixparty.com.
Those who participated in the event cannot recommend the movie enough! It’s not the fact that the movie was the best we have ever seen, but it surely took us on a journey. Throughout the movie we could unmute our mics and make comments about jokes, characters, etc. And no, I will not tell you what happened in the movie…it’s a secret.
It was great to be able to connect to other ambassadors, especially in a relaxed atmosphere. The platform we used made it feel like we were watching the movie in the same room as each other. In an era where we crave the feeling of social and physical not-distancing, this physically distant watch party was a great alternative. All-in-all, the movie/watch party was a great way to connect with fellow ambassadors as well as see a free movie.
