I know I am a little late on this topic but I needed to take some time out and talk about this a bit. I watched the footage that the professor posted last week prior to him posting it because my friend showed me. And let me say how mortified I was. I did not think it was funny, entertaining, cool, or anything along the lines of decent human behavior. After all the university has faced in the Mike Rice scandal I think it was more important than ever for us as Rutgers students to show the nation that we are more than what the news airs on TV and that we are stronger now than ever before. But, no. Those students apparently had other things on their minds. It is one thing to party but to get absolutely uncontrollable is unacceptable.
Let’s talk about the future, shall we? The things we do now are the things that will shape us into what we will become in the future. It is more important than ever that we make a name for ourselves as good human beings. The actions that we take now will inevitably come back to bite us in the proverbial a**. Everyone wants to have fun while they are in college, me included, but I would never do something that would potentially harm my future. I have too much to loose. I would not feel so strongly if the nation did not see the words Rutgers Students printed and spoken in the news. This is clearly an overgeneralization that many will make and look down on the rest of us who are trying to good things here. That is not to say that anyone who attended “Delafest” is not here doing something worthy but what I am trying to say is to make sure everyone thinks before you act. To some this incident might have been awesome but to the rest of us it was plain dumb. Hopefully everyone learned their lesson and will not be participating in anything like this again.
