Dead Week is a time to really buckle down and put one’s nose to the grindstone as we complete our final stretch of the spring semester here at UC Berkeley. One aspect of this infamous week that is often overlooked, however, is the fact that a week with no classes provides our student groups with ample opportunity to host their end of semester banquets and outings. Greek life is no exception.
Just this past weekend, my fraternity has hosted our semesterly date night by sailing on a yacht in the San Francisco Bay, competed an afternoon long “Olympic Games” with local fraternity alumni, and hosted our always highly anticipated end of year banquet at San Francisco’s famous House of Prime Rib. This restaurant was where our fraternity was re-chartered in the year 2004, and ever since then it has been a tradition to wrap up our year in what I suppose is the most appropriate way possible: by shoving our faces with endless amounts of food.
