What is Sendoff? I wish I knew. I asked my French AT (“Qu’est-ce que c’est Sendoff?”) one day and, like the Literal Angel she is, she made a valiant attempt to explain the beloved event in words that my one-semester-into-learning-a-language brain could handle. I caught small part of what she was saying, such as the fact that people dance and drink (“Tu bois et tu danses”), but I’m still pretty clueless as to what this thing is all about. Why didn’t I ask her to explain it in English? Well you see, I love a challenge, and at the time didn’t realize that there were intricacies involved in Sendoff that can’t be explained with one semester’s worth of French vocabulary.
Ask any grizzled college veteran; the answer is always the same. In college, people party.
On special occasions and at smaller liberal arts institutions, the zenith of partying manifests itself in some sort of spring fling, end-of-the-year, beer-blurring banger with a side of music and general light-hearted confusion. Tasty. All too familiar.
With that, I hope you were properly sent off by Summer Sendoff. I hope your clothes were stained by ketchup and beer in a way that would make Jackson Pollock jealous. I hope the only thing weighing you down was the Rubblebucket trumpet player as he crowd surfed. I hope you left class on Friday afternoon and whispered, “South Quad is calling, and I must go.”
It’s Monday now. Start the finals week countdown. Sober up and buckle down kiddos. If you find yourself waxing nostalgic about this weekend, here are some juicy leftovers from the weekend to keep you going.
