Sheek’s recent post on the incoming class of 2012 highlighted the Facebook group that’s been established for high school seniors lucky enough to be coming to Wes. One thing that quickly surfaced in the comments was a reference to a particular thread on the discussion board of said group, titled “are you down?”
The thread begins with a prefrosh who writes:
for the past four years i have lived a life of crazy debauchery, including everything from vodka dorm room parties to drinking wine in the afternoon along with the californian favorite pot. lets just say i wouldnt have it any other way. and i am just wondering who else is down with whatever whenever…
Amid the cheers of, “I’m completely with you on this! I’m totally down,” and, “love to get fuckedu p.. any1 else love old e?” I’m left to wonder… how did the anti-party stereotype of Wesleyan that caused this person to create this thread get introduced to the prefrosh, anyway?
Did WesFest fail to impress? Has Admissions hypnotized them into thinking we don’t party? Or is there something unspeakably depraved about sipping wine in the afternoon that I just don’t know about?
Anyway, I don’t want to burst any prefrosh’s bubble—after all, sipping wine in the afternoon and drinking vodka at a dorm party is so totally debauched! But, I do want to give a hearty, if early, welcome to the class of 2012, because one of you got it right:
Hey all this is Wesleyan. Don’t worry. It’s going to be craaazy.
