Well, when hosting an all-campus party, the Delt Lodge suddenly becomes its own, very humid and sweaty biosphere, so temperature-wise, this probably is Gambier’s hottest club.

The dictionary on my computer defines sweat as “moisture exuded through the pores of the skin, typically in profuse quantities as a reaction to heat, physical exertion, fever, or fear.” I would say that’s accurate.
