With one week left until spring break, it might be difficult to find motivation to get up and going. To kick things into gear before the break, here are five things that you can do this week on Lindenwood’s campus and around the St. Charles area. 

1. See “The Conversion” and “The Godfather” at the Lindenwood Film Series.

Catch back-to-back Francis Ford Coppola flicks this week with “The Conversation” on Tuesday and “The Godfather” on Thursday.

“The Conversation” tells the story of a paranoid surveillance expert who is spying on a couple and suspects that they will be murdered. Thursday’s “The Godfather” is an Academy Award winner for best picture that follows an “aging patriarch” of an organized crime dynasty who transfers control of his clandestine empire to his reluctant son.” Both descriptions are from the Lindenwood Film Series page on
