Increasing levels of semi-threatening e-mails from Wesleyan’s administration could only mean one thing: it’s officially Tour de Franzia season! The Tour consists of a night in which groups of students run around campus, taking pictures of themselves at destinations or performing tasks the organizers come up with—places like “Where Obama spoke” or things like “Hooking up with an islander (no Manhattanites)”—all whilst chugging Franzia with abandon. The first group to finish the entire list (and box, about five-and-a-half bottles of “wine”) wins. The event usually ends with arrests and hospitalizations, not unlike another weekend night at Wesleyan, but definitely more than average. University administrators are doing everything in their power to end the tradition. Both this year and last year, Dean of Students Mike Whaley e-mailed parents in an attempt to get parents to discourage their children from participating.
Yesterday, graffiti (including swastikas and white supremacist slogans) was discovered on and around the Tufts football field. This incident comes one the heels of graffiti (reading “CUNT”) discovered on the opposite end of the Tufts campus: on signs, cars parked in outdoor campus parking lots, and cars parked immediately off-campus.
