I am sitting in Stark lounge right now watching yet another student be wheeled by gurney from Auen to the hospital room and it hit me: there is something seriously wrong with our school's drinking culture. After all, weren't parties supposed to be banned this weekend? (Looks like prohibition has worked wonders again...)
I don't know if I favor a ban, but I can certainly understand why some people are considering it. I would only be comfortable with a ban if the school were to give us back all the money we put into the college partying fund. Now that there are no parties, surely non-drinkers and drinkers could unite on this point? We paid for a service and now that service isn't being rendered. Put simply, where do we go to get our money back?
This party inform is part of the problem. How pathetic is it that we need to have our elected officials tell us how to have fun? He literally needs to list ways for you to amuse yourself. Of course you just know the reason this email was sent out was that people complained about the lack of parties.
To all those who party,
The "let's not talk about it" from the party inform from this Saturday seemed to be a bad idea on my part. Some people mistook that there was a hidden agenda for the night. There are no school sponsored parties tonight. However, there are tons of fun things to do on a Saturday night.
The reasons for tonight not having a party is a mix of things. But in short, we're changing some rules right now, and we're not done changing them. Believe me when I say this is temporary. I know the transition phase has been long, but it'll soon be over. I promise you huge parties and great day parties soon.
For those of you upset about partyless weekend nights, I'll start off by saying I understand. One of the many great things about our school is that we have school sponsored parties. You can't forget how to have fun without these parties though. Before CMC, I doubt your highschool had parties every weekend. After CMC, I doubt your company will have parties every weekend (if they do, please tell me how I can get a job there). You still have fun on Saturdays though. So if you're reading this e-mail tonight (Saturday), go have fun. For those of you reading this after tonight, hope you had a great night!
I apologize for this last minute e-mail, I should of sent this out earlier.
PS: Here's a list of some fun things to do:
Bowling (It doesn't have to be a wednesday to bowl)
Bars (if you're 21)
Hookah Bars (there's a lot around campus)
Mount Baldy (if you haven't been there, there's some fun places up there)
Morongo (it's a casino)
Go on adventures
Do things you don't normally do with a group of friends (like what? it's up to you)
