As it is only my second year here at St. Ambrose, I am still finding myself experiencing new things. Last year, any event that was on campus was always a fun and exciting new thing I got to participate in. Homecoming, Men’s volleyball games, meeting new people, and Last Blast were just a few of the things that made my first-year experience worth-while.
As Spring time has rolled around, and finals or graduation is nearing in people’s future, there is one common thing everyone cannot wait any longer for: Last Blast. To most students, this weekend entails celebration of the past year. Normally this celebration is done through the consumption of alcohol. To faculty and staff, it’s a weekend of concern to their students. There are ways that students can participate in this fun-filled weekend without getting out of control, and enjoying the weekend with friends.
The weekend itself is one of the craziest weekends at St. Ambrose. As this week is coming to an end, Last Blast is on everyone’s minds. Some think that this weekend isn’t the best idea for students. I think that as students we work hard to achieve our goals in the classroom, and we should reward ourselves with a celebration from the hard work given throughout the year. Now, I am not saying that just because as students we work hard, then we should consume alcohol. It is important that we celebrate our hard-work with the friends that we have gained throughout the year, participate in campus-wide events and enjoy the weekend with the whole student body. To all the students, this weekend is supposed to represent a celebration of friends and the school coming to a close. Enjoy the weekend to the fullest, and don’t forget to be safe and have fun!
