Thoughts from the Red Square Info Fair

Each year Western kicks off the school year with the Red Square Info Fair! Tons of clubs, businesses and sports teams come and advertise, give out free stuff and allow students to get to know their community. It's a great way to kick off the school year and leaves us with a few thoughts. 

 

You think, who knew this many people went to WWU?

You wonder why the fountain isn't on?

You immediately avoid the people with the clipboards

Then feel bad when you realize they just want to make sure you’ve updated your address to vote

 

You stand in line to spin a wheel, you win a free sticker woo! Now you can advertise for free for the random company that was too cheap to give you free food

 

You search desperately for a table that is giving away free totes to hold all your free stuff

 

You only ever use it that day to carry around other free stuff you probably won’t use

 

Wait—Dominoes isn’t the tent giving away free pizza? But instead beer ping pong balls?

 

When Jimmy Johns runs out of sandwichs

 

You write your email down for free candy

 

Sure I’ll come to your sports game! Oh..it’s at WCC?

 

COTTON CANDY

 

When people create walkways in front of your line

 

Do I look like I could play rugby?

 

Avoiding eye contact with clubs you’re not apart of anymore

 

Awkward smiles for people you haven’t talked to since freshman year

 

And you can't leave without getting a picture from Victor the Viking to really signal back to school spirit on your instgram
