Last night was the Movie on the Lawn event put on by the Activities Programming Board here at NKU. APB showed “The Great Gatsby,” much different than the superhero themes of previous years with “The Avengers,” “Thor” and “Iron Man 2.”

Ryan Krebiehl, executive director of APB, said that Movie on the Lawn is an APB tradition for Welcome Week.

APB collaborates with Baptist Campus Ministries and the Freshman Service Leadership Committee to provide food and drink to the patrons at the event.

There was also a “going to Gatsby’s party” costume party. The winners received front row seats for the hypnotist event that will take place tonight.

Stefanie Sinclair, a sophomore, and Daniel Stamper, a freshman, said they both enjoyed APB’s movie choice and that they would both like to see more movie nights in the lawn.
Welcome Week events continue tonight with hypnotist Dale K taking the stage in the student union ballroom at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m.
