On Thursday evening, a swarm of seniors descended upon the Rat for the highly-anticipated “Welcome Back Eagles” Pub Series. Lines were short, spirits were high, and the event went off without a hitch.
The event, which ran from 7 to 10 p.m., was a relatively relaxed way to begin the evening, billed as more of a precursor to off-campus activities for the senior class. It supported a healthy social life on campus and, on all accounts, was a significant step up from last year’s somewhat unsuccessful Oktoberfest.
UGBC has responded to complaints about last year’s Pub Series with a number of enhancements to the event, including additional food—all free, and quite substantial, including sliders, pigs in a blanket, and brownies—and a DJ that kept attendees engaged and bonding for the entirety of the three-hour long event. Seasonal and local brews were pouring all night long for the extremely affordable and appreciated price of $3.50, and students remained respectful and
agreeable from start to finish.
Proper planning led to a positive and thoroughly enjoyable event. The Heights would like to commend UGBC on the success of the first Pub Night of 2012 and wish it luck with its upcoming iterations.
