First Years React: Sendoff Expectations

Sendoff is today and first years are abuzz with anticipation. We’ve graduated from our first stage of uncertainty, (click here) and now that we know what sendoff is, we have expectations.

I think it’ll be a lot like the bands that play in Peirce sometimes, but everyone will be drunk and it’ll probably rain. -Sarah Hoffmann

I have zero to low expectations for sendoff. I mean, always set your expectations low in order to maximize unexpected fun right? Anyway, the one preconceived notion that I do have, is that sendoff is one big, drunken picnic of liberal arts burnouts who are reenacting the lyrics of the Kinks song “Sunny Afternoon.” Seriously, if I’m not “sitting here sippin’ on my ice cold beer, lazying on a sunny afternoon in the summertime” then I will be truly shocked, “Cause I love to live so pleasantly, Live this life of luxury.” As far as the evening wilding, I expect Earl Sweatshirt to make me say “Toto, I don’t think were in Gambier anymore,” but then again, it might just feel like the Horn but more outside. -Jane Zisman
Sendoff is the only all-campus event that I haven’t really heard upperclassmen talk shit about. So that’s honestly kind of scary. I just hope it’s not too chilly. -Annie Blackman
