The film club at Salve Regina University is a club of about fifteen Salve students. These students have a passion for film. The club meets at eight o’clock every Tuesday night. The time and day vary each semester in accordance with student schedules.


At the meetings, the club discusses upcoming events and then watches a film that was agreed upon at the previous meeting. Then, those who wish to discuss the film may participate in a discussion.


Film club was created fairly recently. This PSA is meant to reach out to Salve Regina University students. It will use passion for film as the appeal.  The goal of this PSA is to increase club membership.


The film club is a very welcoming club and an enjoyable club to be a part of.  The club is full of people who share a common passion for film.

President Obama addresses the drone attack that has killed two hostages held by al Qaeda.


Chief Justice John Roberts is under pressure as the constitutionality of same-sex marriage is being decided.


Hillary Rodham Clinton is being questioned again about the Benghazi attacks now that she has announced her presidential campaign.



Loretta Lynch has finally been confirmed attorney general. This is the first nomination for an African American woman.

For the past six years, General Eric H. Holder Jr. has held the post. President Obama nominated Lynch in November for the position.

Obama has high expectations for Lynch’s future as attorney general. She will officially become the United States’ 83rdattorney general on Monday.



The conservative Chief Justice John Roberts has a crucial role in whether or not same-sex marriage becomes legal.

The outcome of the US v. Windsor case denied same-sex married couples federal benefits. Although Roberts tends to vote conservatively, he voted in favor of Obamacare three years ago.

It is expected that he will vote conservatively on this issue. However, supporters of same-sex marriage still have hope that he will vote in their favor.



When we return, presidential hopeful Jeb Bush organizes an informal way to meet voters.

Blood Drive at Salve Regina


Media Writing Class: February 2015

Salve Regina University will be holding a blood drive on Thursday and Friday from 12 to 6 pm next week in Ochre Court. The blood drive is open to the public and walk-ins are welcome.

The blood drive is for the Rhode Island Blood Center. Appointments can be made online at their website, with sponsor code 0199. The Rhode Island Blood Center encourages donators to eat before they give blood and be hydrated.

“Every unit of blood donated saves three lives,” says Jacklyn Parsons, the office manager of Health Services at Salve Regina University.

The turnout for Salve Regina University blood drives account for one-sixth of the blood supply in the state, says Jennifer Whelihan, Account Manager of the Rhode Island Blood Center. The RIBC sets goals for the Salve Regina blood drives and they are always met or exceeded, according to Parsons.

Salve Regina University has been hosting these blood drives for twenty years. Having had many students and faculty participate in the blood drive, Salve Regina held an event in appreciation of those who have donated, says Parsons.

Salve Regina has been involving more people in these events. Recently, the Athletic Department has begun bone marrow drives on campus.
