As my first time being behind the scenes planning an event, I thought this one went incredibly well. It was difficult to get my footing at first, but luckily the Entertainment Department has a great director, Margot Grubert, who helped me a lot. I really enjoyed becoming more informed about the planning and effort involved in putting on a successful event. I’m looking forward to the next one!
Thirsty Thursday February 5th 2015
By Margot Grubert ’17, Entertainment Director
I never have quite as much fun staffing an event as I do staffing Thirsty Thursdays. There’s free food, tons of people, great music…What more could you ask for? This particular Thirsty Thursday I pushed through throngs of people to grab a plate of mozzarella sticks and sat down to observe the crowd. I don’t think I’ve ever seen more people in the Stein. The table for four to my left had at least ten people gathered around it, with everyone packed in tightly. Usually members of Student Events start out at one table, overseeing the Stein to make sure everything runs smoothly. Over time I made my way around the room, braving the crowds and grabbing a coveted table where I played cards with some friends who had popped by. Seeing as I’m under 21, hanging out at Thirsty Thursdays is especially fun because it’s almost like I’m at an all-ages bar. It’ll be cool to finally be legal next year and score one of those neon green wristbands. Until then, I’m happy with just my plate of mozzarella sticks!
