We all know a lot of people get CAVA’d at Bacchanal. But since our lovely friends on CU-EMS won’t tell us just how many, we will have to do the math ourselves. Bwog writer Gabrielle Kloppers is here to help for all you liberal arts majors.
Let’s list the assumptions of this equation:
# of people CAVA’d per 20 acres per hour: 1
# of Columbia acres: 299 (rounded to 300 because I’m an English major soooo)
# of hours of Bacchanal: 7 hours (assuming an average pregame time of 10am and a pass-out time of 5pm)
Therefore, we can assume that there are 15 CAVA calls per hour.
With 7 hours of Bacchanal, we come to a grand total of 105. And honestly that’s a lower-end assumption. Let’s change our variables and say that the average amount of CAVA’s per 5 acres per hour is 1.
# of people CAVA’d per 5 acres per hour: 1
# of Columbia acres: 299
# of hours of Bacchanal: 7 hours
This gives us an estimate of: 60 per hour and 420 (!!!) per Bacchanal.
To this English major, 420 CAVA’s per Bacchanal sounds about accurate. Bless the Bacchae! Bless Columbia!
