Forum on Tour de Franzia

Apparently scrolling through the P-Safe “Awareness” Log wasn’t quite reflective enough. And apparently six months (more or less) is never too early to get the ball rolling (sup, @WesPartyGuy?).  The WSA is officially throwing down hosting a forum on Tour de Franzia this Tuesday in PAC:

Please join the WSA and the Office of Student Affairs for a forum addressing issues with the Tour de Franzia on Tuesday, November 15th at 7PM in PAC 002. This forum is intended to be a dialogue between students, administrators, and Public Safety, with the goal of addressing some of the concerns of the community related to the event. Please come and voice your opinion!

Kudos to the WSA for making this conversation happen (and so ahead of time, too), but let’s face it: it’s a Tuesday night, and not everyone who has on opinion on how to deal with TDF is going to be able to make it. So how the hell should we (they?) deal with TDF after two straight years of damage and debauchery? What perspective is the administration missing, and what’s the solution? Feel free to sound off in the comments (whether or not you can make the forum).

Date: Tuesday, November 15
Time: 7:00 PM
Place: PAC 002

    it may be fun, but it’s pretty immature to break windows, knock over plants, and in general just trash the campus. not to mention irresponsible. have your fun, just dont make physical plant have to clean up your shit-ass laziness and disrespect for the campus and the staff

    I think it would be awesome if after we have the event, everyone who participates helps to clean up the next morning. The event is one of the most popular on campus and doesn’t have to result in it looking like another apocalypse has hit (in addition to the clean up costs). While this would not solve the health concerns, I think it would make the event as a whole much more respectable. I’m down to party and down to clean -if anyone wants to join.

    Let’s be real. This event is going to happen no matter what the administration says. It’s one of the most fun nights of the semester where the entire campus gets together and has a ballin’ ass time together as a community. It’s a god damn beautiful tradition.

      yeah. face it: it’s done, we won. I’d like to call on everyone to be extra respectful of property and people who aren’t participating this time around, though…even if it is months in advance.

      the point of the forum is to try to ensure that the event is safe and costs to the university (which are ultimately costs to students) are minimized. but yeah, we won.

    If you completely forbid something, you have no way to make it safe. The administration is making the event more dangerous by forcing it underground.

      I don’t think they are trying to shut it down.  It seems like an open
      forum to discuss how to prevent property damage and to address serious
      health concerns.
