The Monroe Library is a proud partner in the 2015-2016 Common Experience. The First Year Experience, with the library and Student Affairs, is instituting a “common experience” this year for incoming students. The FYE Common Experience Program begins the academic year with the screening of the film for all first-year students. The chosen film, Bury the Hatchet, follows three Mardi Gras Indians. The Mardi Gras Idians were identified as relating to the common experience because of the resilience within their own community, and the film also commemorates the 10-year anniversary of Katrina.
Continuous showings of the film will be shown for the Loyola community in Multimedia Room 2 in the library Tue and Wed, 8/25 and 8/26. The showtimes are 9, 11, 1, and 3; the film runs for approximately 90 minutes.
