The 5 Stages of Going to An Beal

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Manhattan chapter.

1. Try to go as an underclassmen because “it’s not Riv.”

You kind of want a drink, but you wanna be “low key” about it, you know?

2. Get denied.

No, no – not today.

3. Suck it up and wait until you’re an upperclassman or you’re actually 21.

It’s kind of an upperclassmen privilege.

4. Go back and actually get served.

Relish in this moment as you watch the youths get denied. 

5. Never want to go back to Riv, Fens or Punch Bowl again (unless its Karaoke night).

You’re old now, and you f*cking love it.
