    Ok sorry for posting this here, but I need somewhere to share my rage about Senior Week . . .

    Dear Senior Week,

    What the fuck.

    1) Not a week. Just three days.
    2) Not even one of your events is free. And senior ball is at the not-particularly-classy Chelsea Piers yet costs $95. And your website advises me to eat beforehand just in case there isn't enough food.
    3) The supposed "deal" of the full package is saving me a whopping 10 dollars.
    4) I was informed today at the TIC that somehow, EVEN THOUGH I AM PAYING $150, I now can't go to two of the events that my package is supposed to buy me because you already sold out of individual tickets.

    I don't understand why Columbia couldn't just add $50 per year to our tuition that none of us would notice and actually make this an enjoyable weekend that everyone can share regardless of available spending money or getting tickets early enough. Or somehow devise something better than this.

    Clearly I'm still going to everything -- that is except the inexplicably sold-out movie screening and senior festival -- so fine you win. But this is really disappointing.

    Love,
    Disgruntled CC '11

    PS: I welcome explanations from those in the know of why it has to be this way. I realize that bureaucracy sucks and that whoever you are who planned this are probably doing the best you can.

    • agree: re expenses

      but I don't think the solution is shell out 150 and go to all the ridiculous events.
      be choosy! i'm just going to the booze crooze and the (free) senior dinner... forget the senior ball what a waste of money to give us that last chance to have a good prom experience.
      spoiler alert: proms just aren't fun. and this juiced up 'adult' version is no different.

    • agreed  

      i'm not going to any events (except senior dinner) because i can get drunk and dance somewhere else for less money.

      I'm pretty bummed that I feel I've been excluded from my senior week and senior cruise. Usually I just let these thing slide because I realize how completely inept whoever plans these things are... but seeing as I only graduate once I might actually pursue this. Doe anybody have any idea of who I could email?
