There are always a few of you each year–the select bunch who haven’t mastered the art of drunk blogging for Writing Seminar. While the rest of campus is praying to the gods of Pong and Porcelain, you’re holed up in a Huntsman GSR…which is why we present you with:
The Anti-Flinger’s Guide to Fling
1. Start your Fling Friday in the VP Stacks, where we’re sure an Independent Study (if you know what we mean) won’t do it for ya. Booty call a friend, describing your location with the Dewey Decimal System.
2. How desperate is too desperate, you ask? Rising freshmen are fair game. 11th-graders are a no-go–unless they’ve broken a 2100.
3. On the off-chance you start to envy red cups and the people who hold them, remind yourself that you are classy. Take swigs from the bottle of Poland Spring (without the label, of course) that you snuck into the library, cringing with each swallow. Remind yourself that it’s only water.
Greekdex is back--As if Facebook somehow doesn't fulfill your stalking needs, the stalk-my-sorority database, Greekdex, has returned after a one-year hiatus. You won't be able to see much until you log in, but features include house directories, Spotify playlists, and photo albums. For those who care about their ogle-ability more than their Google-ability, the site is sure to be far from bro-ing!
Check out this comprehensive list of tonight’s fraternity rush events, compliments of the IFC. Click on the image below to blow it up. Then print, laminate and frame it. But most importantly, memorize it and plan your dinner(s) accordingly.
While you may have spent this weekend bragging about how many formals you got invited to, one fraternity was determined to highlight their social season in a different way. In an email that is both hilarious and precious, this frat attempts to show the ultimate proof of brotherhood: a Foursquare badge.
The author implores all attendees to check in to the formal venue in order to create a “Swarm” of 50+ check ins, which is apparently better than getting laid. We don’t even think this is some kind of rush tactic, it’s just plain… silly.
While researching, we noticed that Reisman said of his dream to become an astronaut, “It was a long shot – no pun intended,” in at least several interviews. Could it be that this pun was, in fact, intended? As this one-time DRL rat prepares for his second space-walk, we too must prepare. Prepare to wait a long time for our answer.
May the force be with you, Garrett. No movie reference intended.
Yesterday around 1pm, my class on the third floor of Williams Hall was interrupted by sounds of yelling, screaming, and fighting in the hallway. I emerged from the classroom to find this scene:
One guy (seen in the middle of the pack with the semi-’fro) was being wrestled to the ground by a group of six or so ladies related to an unnamed organization. It was clear the man was holding something of importance and it was definitely not fragile, as the girls were trying to pry it from his hands by throwing his helpless body from wall to wall.
Despite a valiant struggle that lasted several minutes, the guy (pledge?) was overwhelmed and defeated, and the girls fled the scene with their hard-fought prize: a teddy bear.
Was the guy trying to “Indiana Jones” a prized sorority treasure? Or was he himself a victim of a sorority pledge scavenger hunt?
