CAMPUS LIFE

7 - NEW YEAR'S EVE - 23/40

Food: **

Some people opt for a pricey meal at a fancy hall; others realize food really isn't the focus of New Year's - all you need are a few appetizers and a lot of alcohol.

Colour Scheme: ****

It's a celebration and every colour is invited! This flashy holiday doesn't discriminate, incorporating a blend of silver and gold and everything glitter.

Gifts: *

Greedy bastards. Merely a handful of days after Christmas, people clearly don't have any money left to buy presents.

Music: ***

The only time you'll hear a mix of "Auld Lang Syne," off-key shouting of the countdown to be echoed throughout the city and the incessant sound of U2's "New Year's Day," blaring from airwaves everywhere.

Time of year: ***

You're supposed to look really hot on New Year's, but there's a problem - it's really cold. A heavy sweater isn't that sexy, but with enough alcohol, it will likely come off eventually.

Preparation: *

New Year's is a highly overrated holiday, as people are determined to plan out the greatest night of their lives. With pressure like this, it's not surprising New Year's can't perform.

Company: ****

Some people get caught up in the hoopla and attend some fancy event among strangers, where the greatest joy comes from wearing swanky new party pants. The safest bet is usually a house party with your closest friends.

Drink Rating / Chances for Sex / Getting Arrested: *****

This is the best time to do some crazy shit you've never done before, because come on, it's a NEW YEAR - meaning zero regrets and a whole lot of debauchery.
