Sapere aude - dare to be wise

Smells Like School Spirit.

This weekend we have Jog For Justice, SBA Flag Football Tourney, and salsa dancing for extracurricular activities. It is a shame so few of you are going to participate in any of those events. I realize that we, as students, have limited funds and limited time. The fact that three interesting events got scheduled on the same weekend does not help either, and forces you to pick and choose what you can attend. However, I have noticed over the past few years that we as a student body tend not to participate in many events that have nothing to do with making contacts, getting jobs, or have alcohol at them. Why is that? No answer comes to me.

Jog For Justice had difficulty coming up with 150 or so runners the last I heard. In fact a fair number who are in it are not even students, but outside runners who want to participate in a worthy cause. Given the numerous student organizations you would think that the flag football tourney would have come up with more than six teams, but we did not. I have heard comments on how participating for salsa night depending on is there going to be alcohol there. At best we seem apathetic, at worst...I don't know.

You would think that between the work of classes, internships, LARC assignments, moot court, law review, jobs, and all the other things that we do as a part of school that that the student body woud relish being part of activities that allow you to see your friends and fellow classmates in a totally different and relaxing light. Yet we don't for whatever reason.

Many of the people in this building now will be your coworkers, industry mates, and friends for the rest of your life. Don't you want to know what the person on the other side of the room is like before you graduate and then file a motion for summary judgment against his future client? Why don't you take the time to do so now?
