IFC President Asks Students to “Party Smarter”
Max Wendkos, president of the Interfraternity Council (IFC), contributed a column to today’s Collegian making an argument against student-created drinking holidays.
However, in contrast to the normal argument against the holidays rooted in their obvious public safety implications, Wendkos asks the student body to realize that by disregarding the pleas of community members to control ourselves, we are telling them to “shove it.”
We have found ourselves in the middle of a political game in which we have no leverage. We cannot simply “party” those whohave expressed concerns into submission. The longer it takes the student body to recognize this and to make the appropriate adjustments, the more we stand to lose.
Head on over to the Collegian and check out the full column. It’s well worth the read.
