Alas, after 12 days of hype, artist profiles, wisdom and advice, the Spring Week festivities have finally drawn to a close. Beat the post-Spring Week blues by reliving this past week’s events: find/tag your friends in the two photo albums on our Facebook page that catalog all that went on in this these that felt like an alternate reality. We’ve taken it upon ourselves to relieve the burden of trying to remember every last second of your Spring Week experience… and to give you some inkling of what took place over the past couple of days. (You’re welcome.)
Spring Week is mysterious to freshmen. By this point in our second semester, few things still make us feel like freshmen; we have studying regimes, and there are currently young ADOCH pre-frosh wandering around, reminding us that we’re not even close to as confused as they are. We seem to have it all together.
But Spring Week(end) reminds us that we have not actually been here all that long. Because if you don’t know who Binder is, you don’t know anything.
It’s also difficult to find out things about Spring Week(end).
“Why is it Spring Week? What are the week elements?”
“Because it’s a whole week!!! And it’s the best week ever.”
That is really about as much you can get out of anyone about The Greatness of Spring Week
end. I’m thinking this has to do with the magic really being that inexplicable, and also intoxication reasons.
According to Wikipedia, which is always the solution, here is the most important element of the next six days:
Looking for something fun to do on the Spring Week hump day? Check out the Class Coordinating Board’s Mr. and Ms. Brown Pageant! The event will be held on Wednesday, April 17 at 7 p.m. in Sayles Hall.
The twelve dazzling contestants are all members of the senior class and will go head-to-head to compete for the “Mr. and Mrs. Brown” titles. Trust us: these guys mean business! After all, they’ve already fought off nearly 100 other nominees to get to the Sayles stage. The nominees have a wide array of talents—expect some dancing, singing, poetry-reading, and a large amount of senior shenanigans.
If you don’t go for the talent, go for the judges. The pageant will be judged by campus favorites Barrett Hazeltine, Fiery Cushman, and Barbara Tannenbaum, alongside Senior Class Presidents Brandon Tomasso ’13 and Kelsey Tripp ’13, and Cara Lemire ’13, who currently holds the title of Miss Eastern Massachusetts. Audience votes will also be factored into judging so bring your friends to support some talented and courageous Brown students! In all seriousness, this will be absolutely hilarious. Don’t miss it.
If you think that the Spring Weekend magic starts on Friday, you’re in for quite the treat. From now until Binder takes the stage, it’s time to celebrate springtime at Brown. Spring Week is a time when sheer happiness is contagious, and campus is transformed into a playground. It’s a time for you put your work on the back burner and feed off of the student body’s good spirit(s) and high energy. We take the week to celebrate Brown, good friends, good music, and having almost completed a great year. Here’s to taking the week to do what makes you happy. The fun starts now.
