Spring Fling Whoo! Classes no mo. Here is a reminder that we are grownups, so please be responsible and pick up any shit you drop on the Hill:
An open letter to the Wesleyan community:
As you all know, tomorrow is Spring Fling, and we would just like to take this opportunity to let you know that having this event is an immense privilege to the student body. Due to the economic crisis, the university is not hiring, no one on the faculty will be receiving any sort of raise this year, and people across this entire country are living in fear regarding the security of their jobs. In light of all of this, the administration has decided that it is still appropriate to provide us with $50,000 for a 5-hour event.
We know it is easy to forget about all this while sitting on the hill at camp Wes, but we ask that you keep a couple things in mind tomorrow:
1. This is an immensely difficult show to put together. Please be respectful of everyone present who is helping to ensure it runs smoothly, including the MPD.
2. Please clean up your trash. Social Committee hits the hill each year at 6AM to set up for Spring Fling, and one of the first things we do is distribute somewhere around 100 different vessels for trash and recyclables around the hill for your convenience. Due to budgetary constraints, this year we will be hiring NO ADDITIONAL STAFF to help with the hours of cleanup that our group is also tasked with after the show each year, when the hill is completely trashed. The trashcans are easy to find, and we are all extremely tired at the end of the show. This is the most important thing. PLEASE HELP US!
Remember, don’t take Spring Fling for granted, and don’t take the University Events staff for granted. The administration has been incredibly kind to us, so we ask that you please repay the favor by not turning Foss Hill into a landfill tomorrow.
The Wesleyan University Social Committee
SEE YOU ON THE HILL KIDS!
