A snow day didn’t stop students in Professor Mike Gormley’s class, “Star Wars as Narrative and Culture,” from delivering stellar final presentations on what they learned this semester.

As the major part of their final, the students were required to give oral presentations to their classmates. After all the presentations were completed, the students voted through an online survey for the one they felt was the best. Patrick Petitto's final presentation was the one chosen by the students. Mr. Petitto won two tickets to the opening night of the last Star Wars movie: Episode IX, “The Rise of Skywalker.” In an interesting twist, Mr. Petitto already had opening night tickets and ended up switching prizes with second place winner Zachary Behrmann. Professor Gormley also gave his own award to student Dee Dee LePage for her presentation.

This course has been a big hit with students, filling up quickly when it was introduced. It will be offered again in Fall 2020.
