Frosh Week still rules, get over it

Re: "O-Week and Chili Peppers," Mar. 6

To the editor:


Like many Western students, I read the letters to the editor on a daily basis. I enjoy the opportunity to hear the opinions of others concerning various issues surrounding the school and community. On this note, I would like to politely request that Chris Clarke stop wasting space.

Believe it or not, you effectively conveyed your opinion back in mid-February when you proclaimed Frosh Week to be the "worst week of the year," and "the only thing that would have made any of those activities fun is booze." There is no need for you to continue to complain any more, we all got it.

As for your most recent attempt to share your pessimistic opinions and unconstructive criticism with the rest of Western, I have a few things to say.

First, I would bet that those who enjoyed Frosh Week at other schools have very little in common with you. A good attitude, and the ability to find "interesting/exciting/intelligent/enjoyable" aspects in activities other than drinking springs to mind.

Second, as for the wonder that is Swollen Members, I believe that many would agree that Sloan was not a bad choice in comparison.

And lastly, for the life of me, I can't understand why you truly believe Gazette readers want to hear more of your pleasant opinions or the reason you've broadcasted to all your friends just how much Western's O-Week sucked.

You have made your opinion loud and clear: you hated O-Week. My advice to you would be to get over it and move on.
