SID. 

Today is a Summer Information Day.

SIDs include a campus tour, student panel, and a presentation by an admissions officer discussing academic and student life, the admissions process, and financial aid. The day begins with registration at 8:00 a.m. and concludes with refreshments at around 1:00 p.m.

Have you been to one? 

When I worked in admissions 3 summers ago, I co-created a pre-show to our SIDs with another one of the visit coordinators.  The Sassy and Bitter Show, as it came to be known in the office, was the worst trivia contest of all time.  The prize was four years paid tuition to the university.  Nobody ever won.

Breaking Records. 
Did you know that we broke the record for the largest Scavenger Hunt in the world this year? Cause we did. Actually…924 crazy, zany, running UChicagoans did. 
(Photo cred: Terence Lee)

Suck it, Canadian school children!  
No, seriously, the previous record holders were the students of an elementary school in Toronto.  We showed them an important lessen about life: a group of jerks will always come take a dump on your dreams of greatness.

While I’m on the subject of housing at the UofC, let’s just take a moment to bask in the majesty of the People’s Dorm, Pierce Tower.  Sure, it’s not as Gothic as Snitchcock or B-J.  It’s not as new as South or Max.  And it’s not as Bermuda Triangle-esqe as Maclean or Broadview.  But for those of us who realize that the building doesn’t mean shit, but it’s the people inside who count; who understand the importance of under-promising and over-delivering; who are excited when the elevator works; who get Geno; who don’t need things like “large rooms” or “privacy,” there will always be Pierce.  Let BJ claim to be Hogwarts.  Pierce will always be home.

Mirroringlight says that she feels an absence of Pierce Tower love on Tumblr.  Well I’d like to introduce you to my good friend, Ovis Canadensis.  This badass is the official mascot of what is clearly the best house in Pierce, Shorey House.  Bask in it’s majesty! I would welcome the new first years, but people are born as Shoreyites.  These new first years are simply fulfilling their destinies.  So instead, I will say simply, “that’ll do, Pig.”
