An excited audience of 35 people waited for the premiere of Game of Thrones, season eight, in Spagnuolo Hall on April 16 at 8 p.m.

Marisa Najarian, Experience Director for New Hampshire and Mt. Washington Halls, was responsible for coming up with the idea to host this event.

“It was always something people were mentioning or making references to. It was not one group of people [attending the event]. It was something to bring everyone together to just geek out and enjoy the show,” said Najarian.

Game of Thrones has been a beloved show for audiences worldwide, including students at Franklin Pierce. This season is the last and has been highly anticipated. Soda, pizza, and other snacks were provided.

Freshman Collin Sullivan, who watched the episode, said, “Great opening to the final season, I would certainly go again.”




There is a crisis of trust in journalism right now. Many Americans say they don’t trust the news media
anymore, and poll after poll shows that they want newspapers to be more transparent about how the
news is gathered. This semester the Exchange is asking its reporters to describe what they did to report the facts, in what we’re calling a transparency statement. We ask our readers to feel free to use the comment boxes at
the bottom of each article to call them out when the reporters may not have done enough and to compliment them when you think they’ve done a good job.
In order to obtain the quotes and information necessary for this article I interviewed Collin Sullivan in person.  Later I arranged an interview with Marisa Najarian.
