7 Movies You And Your Roommate Need To Watch This Fall

Because no fall is complete without a movie marathon.

7 Movies You And Your Roommate Need To Watch This Fall

Movie nights in are one of the best ways to bond with your roommate. Not only do you learn a lot about what type of movies your roommate likes, but movies also facilitate many deeper conversations that can help you get to know more about the roommate in question's background. Plus, with fall right around the corner, now is the perfect time to spend cooler nights inside watching some of your favorite movies.


When 13-year-old Marnie learns that she is a witch after sneaking to a magical town where her grandmother lives called Halloweentown, she is thrown into trouble and eventually saves the day. This Disney Channel classic is one of those movies that makes its appearance every year. This movie is the perfect excuse to relive all of your childhood nostalgia with your roommate.

Hocus Pocus

This is another Disney film that just never gets old during the fall months. Featuring a trio of witches resurrected from the dead by the main character Max in an attempt to impress his crush, what more could you ask from a good fall children's movie? While it may be lacking in cinematic quality, it is one of those movies you watch purely because it's on every fall.

Sleepy Hollow

The Tim Burton film based on the story "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" is a scary movie featuring a headless horseman who is the suspected culprit of countless murders in the town of Sleepy Hollow. While scary movies aren't for everyone, they are the best movies to watch in preparation for Halloween, so a fall movie list wouldn't be complete without at least one.

The Nightmare Before Christmas

Falling between Halloween and Christmas, this movie is always a great option. When the pumpkin king, Jack Skellington, learns about a holiday called Christmas, he is quick to make a plan to gain control of the holiday, but things don't exactly go as planned. Add "The Nightmare Before Christmas" to any roommate movie night from now until Christmas to mix things up a bit from the traditional fall film.

Harry Potter

While this movie doesn't necessarily fit with the other fall movies on the list, fall is just as great of a time to watch Harry Potter as any. In case you have been living under a rock and are not familiar with the plot line of Harry Potter, it's essentially the tale of an orphaned boy named Harry learning he is a wizard and his coming-of-age story as he tries to navigate all of the things that come with his powers of wizardry.


Nothing screams fall and Halloween quite like "Ghostbusters." This classic is the perfect addition to any fall night in with your roomie. "Ghostbusters" manages to mix the supernatural and comedy, creating the perfect pairing when you aren't in the mood for something scary but still want to feel all the fall vibes.

The Sixth Sense

This M. Night Shyamalan movie is a perfect possibility for any movie night this fall. Even though the surprise ending may not really be a surprise by now, it is still a great creepy movie to watch this fall season.

Grab some popcorn, your favorite fuzzy blanket and your roommate and prepare for a movie marathon that screams fall.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
