Q: What is the worst thing you’ve seen a student try to get away with on Picnic Day?
A: I’ve thought back on the handful of Picnic Days I’ve quasi-worked at and really don’t think there is one that stands out. I can say I’m always surprised and dismayed at the students I see along Russell and at the parade, or just early on, who appear to have already consumed a day’s worth of alcohol; and I haven’t even had my first cup of coffee. I’m not sure if they think no one will notice or they simply just don’t care. The idea that this is ‘fun’ is truly beyond me. I would hope this year, our students would decide to put their best foot forward and let our visitors see just what we have to offer the future. It’s a great time that all of us should enjoy and remember … be safe and responsible.
