Simply put, college kids are partying because other college kids have decided it’s okay, or are too afraid to push back when they see it happening.
While daunting, WILD is completely do-able sober. Honestly, it’s not different at all from doing it drunk. It all depends on how comfortable you are around other people who are drunk. Don’t be scared by people who only focus on the drinking. You can gain many memories even without the added alcohol.
There are certain traits that the world’s most successful people share. Successful individuals are creative and hardworking. They pay attention to details and are highly sociable creatures. But there is another skill that I am willing to bet that they possess.
As the Super Bowl is fast approaching, viewing parties are popping up all over. It’s a Super Bowl tradition to munch on great snacks and finger food while watching the big game. Whichever team or halftime artists you’re cheering on, party snacks can be a game changer from the viewer’s perspective.
All I can say is wow…my first W.I.L.D. was even more wild than I thought W.I.L.D. could be. Out of the dozens and dozens of stories I’ve heard from my upperclassmen friends, not one could even begin to accurately describe the phenomenon that is the concert in Brookings Quad.
Well, freshmen, tomorrow is W.I.L.D. We know this is kind of a big deal. It is your first big college party. Since Frat Row has been essentially shut down for the past few weeks, you really haven’t a clue as to what a real “college” party entails.
The night of Rock the Row was unusually quiet this year. Interfraternity Council (IFC) advised the fraternities not to hold any evening events after Rock the Row on Monday. The annual event marks the opening of Greek Life on campus to new students.
Perhaps it is too early in the year to be lamenting anything. But lament I will. In two weeks, Wash. U. students will be faced with a major, major problem. A problem that I don’t believe I have ever encountered in my tenure at this institution. This problem, which stirs the very depths of my being, is the problem of too many parties.
Last weekend, we received word from the Washington University Police Department that patrols from the University City Police Department would increase in the area north of campus. This area, including University Drive, Washington Ave., Kingsbury Blvd., Kingsland Ave., and Trinity Ave, contains property owned by the University and is home to a number of students.
When we first heard about the recent influx of complaints from the University City community about noise and trash from Wash. U. students living north of campus, our thoughts jumped to concern about what this could mean for WUPD’s historically liberal alcohol policy.
