IFC No Fan of State Patty’s Day, But So What?
After an embarrassing setback by the leak of his email to IFC presidents about the Penn State Pulse survey, IFC President Max Wendkos seems determined to his resolve in combating high-risk drinking.
Indeed, to quote the Collegian’s article,
“We strongly discourage unsafe drinking,” Wendkos (senior-marketing and psychology) said Sunday. “That has nothing to do with State Patty’s Day — that’s all the time.”
The question is whether it will matter. Luke Pierce, last year’s president, noted that the rules on State Patty’s Day parties will do a significant amount to reduce an unavoidable event.
The rules are no liquor, no wine, and no more than 50 nonmembers. Frankly, this will likely do less good than a similar proposal from the taverns or UPUA would. And later tonight we will see UPUA President Gavin Keirans lead his assembly in discussion of the holiday– after he announces his veto on a piece of elections code legislation.
