To the Wesleyan community,
Greetings. Today I write to commend you on your solitude (so far, read on) on this day usually reserved for displays of affection, even love. That being said, the administration understands the toll the suppression of sexuality takes on the developing mind and has been hard at work with local and state officials to reach a compromise on your behalf.
Looks like I spoke too soon: it’s going to thunderstorm tonight and tomorrow morning; hence, the hill/stage area is going to be wet; hence, Spring Fling is in the ice rink. Whoops. Looks like the groundskeepers made the call earlier than expected.
Says Spring Fling Committee member Phil “Trill” Weinstein ’13 on behalf of the committee: “We’re doing everything we can to make it still awesome.” Alas, you can’t bring alcohol anymore. Anyone know why “ice rink” and “legal-age drinking” are incompatible? I don’t.
Here’s the all-campus email:
Dear Wesleyan Students,
Due to inclement weather and consequent safety and grounds concerns, this year’s Spring Fling, Thursday, May 10, 2012 from 1-5 will be moved to the ice rink at the Freeman Athletic Center. We’re doing everything we can to make this indoor experience the best it can possibly be – with funds normally used for fencing and staging, we’re investing in lighting, projection, and sound. The show goes on. We hope to see you there!
As is always the case, the Code of Non Academic Conduct is in effect and members of the community are expected to abide by the policies. In order to preserve the future of Spring Fling and ensure that students can continue to enjoy this, we want you to be aware of what to expect:
