2012 wants to know: Are you down?

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.

    there’s so much peer pressure at wesleyan… for example, i should be writing my final paper, but instead i’m commenting on wesleying.

    i also came to wesleyan thinking i wouldn’t drink/do drugs/etc. That changed… significantly. I don’t regret any of it, though, and I feel totally in control and free from peer pressure.

    Sounds like this “are you down” girl is a phony just trying to appear cool to here future class. What a lame attempt. God I hate high schoolers, and yes she is a high schooler! I bet she’s a book worm just looking to break out of her old self. I can’t wait until orientation when she eats too many pot brownies or gets sick from downing too muck vodka.

    i would like to note that just because you come to wes thinking you’re not into partying/drinking/whatever, it doesn’t mean you will stay that way. i don’t mean to suggest that there is any sort of peer pressure here, i’m just saying that you may find the scene very different and/or much better than the scene at home, and start making different choices. those of you who aren’t into that stuff–people just want you to be happy and having fun; nobody cares what you do, but be open-minded too!

    I think the reason for the “are you down” girl is because of a couple other threads was because of the threads with people who weren’t into the drinking/drugs/partying scene at Wes.

    wesleyan will teach you that all prefrosh are the same. identical. in every way. so please, if you feel different, start speaking up about it now, because once you get to wes you’ll learn that that’s not the case. no one is different.
