The Evolution of The Horror Film
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
No film genre has endured for as long as horror. In the early days, we made the monsters, like Frankenstein. Then we made them by accident through, for example, nuclear weapons. Then the monsters came from within. And slowly but surely it dawned on us that the call was coming from inside the house, because we were the house and the caller and the monster.
 
Join Jim, local writer and film buff (seriously, is there any movie he hasn't seen??) as he traces this evolution and maybe, maybe, if it's not too scary, we can all present a top ten list of the best the genre has to offer.

Collegewise - Admissions 201
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Grades, test scores, and impressive activities (at school or at home) alone won’t get a student admitted to schools that reject almost all of their applicants. So how do students who get accepted to the Ivy Leagues, Stanford, Tufts and the rest of the nation’s most selective colleges set themselves apart from the rest of the applicant pool? We’ll show you at this webinar. We’ll also reveal some Collegewise strategies to improve a student’s chances of admission at the most selective schools. While we don’t believe that prestigious colleges are necessarily better colleges, we want students who are interested in these schools to have straight answers about what it will really take to have a shot at getting in.
