If I could change one thing about my PWI it would be this demonizing stigma that we are such an elite institution that the phrase “Where Fun Goes to Die” was popularized. When I first got into UChicago I got one of two different responses when I asked about parties: “That’s where fun goes to die” or “It’s to already too much work you won’t have time to party”. Parties aren’t just crazy social events, they are a destresser for some. I am part of that some. I party to forget my troubles for a few hours, hang with some friends and have a great time. To tell me I can’t de-stress from an already very intense school life is just crushing. To add insult to injury, I’m not the only one who suffers from something like this. Many people find parties to be a social getaway room the everyday. I would encourage the social scenes on campus. First, I would start by looking at more interactive students from highschools and offer them admissions as they are smart and involved. With more social people to replace the traditional “UChicagoan”, social scenes will continue to grow and develop. Doesn’t even have to be huge parties with hundreds of people just a grand time with great people, flame music, and no bull going around. ITS LITT.
