Don’t shoot the messenger.

The 2nd Senior Cocktail event scheduled in December is no longer happening. In an e-mail from the Senior Class Officers:

On the night of cocktails various students verbally abused bus drivers, who were simply trying to ensure the safety of our class. In addition, a driver, who was also the head of the company, was physically assaulted by a student. Many drinking containers and illegal drugs were left on the bus, which contributed to the injury of another driver. In addition, considerable cleaning was needed to make sure these buses were ready to transport school children the next morning. Due to the class’s behavior that night, the bus company has decided not to work with the senior class anymore. This was one of the few bus companies in the state that would work with us, and since there is a labor shortage in the bus industry right now finding a replacement will be very difficult.

No matter how inebriated anyone was that night, this behavior is inexcusable, and has made hosting the next event impossible and impractical. As a result, we have cancelled the December event. We hope that you will reflect on your individual actions and the lack of responsibility of the class as a whole.

(Marianna adds: “We are currently seeking other transportation and venues who will work with us as well as ways to make these events celebratory of our senior year while eliminating some of the problems that occurred last week. As we determine the costs of such events, we will reevaluate the overall cost of the senior pass, taking into account the fact that there will be no December event. If, at that time, individuals do not feel that they wish to purchase a pass for the new series of events, they will be able to “opt out” and only be charged for the first event.”)

    WTF, I hate that the senior class is being blamed because a bunch of people are assholes. I never witnessed anything that night that suggested this and am pissed at the assholes who fucked it up, but don’t go blaming the senior class as a whole. Anonymous at 9:50, get the fuck off your high horse. Also, for the record, I think our senior officers did a shit job of planning/running the event anyway. I’m not really gonna miss the December one as long as we get our money back.

    We’re Wes. We care about big issues, like the the War, so it’s OK to abuse the local community.

    I’m an 08 and I totally agree, this was inexcusable. But it’s true, that the reason there are no bus companies that will work with us is that year after year Wesleyan seniors have been burning bridges. So I agree with 9:40, it’s the culmination of a slow buildup of gross.
