    Event going on campus?

    I've noticed this all week, what event is going on on campus? There's a bunch of kids from everywhere in the world here and it's like an invasion of kids. I asked an Asian family who I sat by but they didn't understand English.

    Re: Event going on campus?

    Can't wait for my day off tomorrow. I think I'll go wander around campus, watch the kids running around, and maybe get to chew one or two out for being an idiot.

    I look forward to the lulz.

    So "smart" kids (and I use quotation marks because book smart doesn't equal socially smart) don't need to have manners? That's ludicrous.
