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?
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
