When railway hobo is not an option
Western plays host to job fair


Business vultures were hunting for prey yesterday at Western's annual All-Campus Job Fair, swooping in to lure the university's best and brightest to join their cause – as opposed to eating them, as normal vultures do.

CAMPUS INQUISITION

With this year’s highly anticipated Charity Ball set to go this Saturday evening, The Gazette decided to find out who was taking a “guaranteed thing” and who was flying solo.

“I’m going with someone because he’ll buy me drinks all night long, and I won’t have to wait in the lineups.”
—Sarah Triantafillou,
MIT IV

“I’m not going at all because I don’t have a dress.”
—Andria Glen,
Political Science III

“I’m going alone. There are no worries because you can just go and have a good time, and it’s more fun to meet people that way.”
—Stephen McCann,
HBA I

“I’m going alone. An advantage to going alone, you don’t have to baby-sit your date. But you might not get to dance during the slow songs.”
—Melanie Directo,
French III

“Or you might have to dance with weird, creepy guys you don’t know.”
—Erin Hunt,
Biology IV

“I’m going with someone because if you go with someone, and you don’t meet a better option during the night, you still won’t have to go home lonely.”
—Adrienne McCurdy,
Psychology II
