Man On Campus: If You Could Go Back In Time…

In Robert Zemeckis’s 1985 classic film “Back to the Future,” Michael J. Fox is sent back to Nov. 5, 1955, setting the stage for one of the most innovative movies of the last 30 years. To commemorate yesterday’s 59th Anniversary of Marty McFly’s arrival, members of the St. Paul’s community told The Paper Wolf where they would go if they had the chance to hop inside the DeLorean.

MoranAndrew Moran, the apple-wielding Director of the Marching Wolves, chose two dates. “I would go to Woodstock to witness the greatest rock concert in the history of humanity, to hear Jimi Hendrix’s Star-Spangled Banner solo, and to see all of those legendary bands in one place,” Moran says. “I would also go to the premiere of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony to be in the audience for the first time the world heard a masterpiece of that magnitude.”
