Film on the Fifty

Film on the Fifty is a tradition in which students have an opportunity to go “between the hedges” of Sanford Stadium and sit on either the field or in the stands and watch a movie on the Jumbotron. Though enjoyed by all students, Film on the Fifty is a tradition especially memorable for graduating seniors as they cherish their final days on campus and think back to the moment they were first united between the hedges at Freshman Welcome.
