Lacrosse games are a party, and the players love it, always posting statuses for us to show up and get rowdy. They have their own DJ and they play party music between plays. That's how you get fans on your side, that and winning the national championship!

I play rugby, and it's less of a party, but we do encourage people to come drink and have a good time, we love the support, so I don't know where football gets off complaining about us getting rowdy at their games.
Usually when there are drunk people in the stands, it deteriorates to "grabuge" (English would be mayhem/destruction/trouble) and violence many times. It makes the environment hostile in general. Also feeds into the hooliganism we see in many other sports (soccer) where fans act like entitled babies. I'm not calling anyone in BU entitled, since I never went to see a game there, but that's just my personal opinion on letting people get pissed drunk during a sports event.

What exactly is "frosh"? Is it like an organized thing, or do you just go drinking and whatever?

Also, is it restricted to your own program?

In short... the greatest week of your life.

It's basically a week's worth of activities for new students to get to know each other and to have a fun time before having to buckle down and hit the books. It's fully structured with different events going on each day. Will there be a lot of drinking? Yes. Do you have to drink? Absolutely not.

I'm actually in the process of organizing YOFO right now (CASA-JMSB's Frosh) for all first year JMSB students. I would HIGHLY suggest you make it out to everything... you won't regret it based on what we've got planned for JMSB Froshies.

Haha sounds fun. I'm a second year, but missed out last year, and I just switched to JMSB
(so I guess I'm a first year?)... can you bring out of program people? All my friends are in different programs.

Most events are restricted to first year students due to capacity issues, but there are events that are open to all JMSB students. When we post the schedule of events, we'll be making special mention of the events that are open to all. JMSB brings in nearly 2000 first year students every single year, so we can't feasibly cater to everyone (so I guess the YOFO theme is fitting). Admittedly though, we probably have the highest attendance rate for FROSH amongst all of the faculties at ConU.

You go under the books as a first year student at JMSB according to the student list provided to us by the Dean of Students; therefore, you're a Froshee to me. Students from out of program will have to attend their own respective Frosh's (assuming they're first year students). You might think it's a bummer, but you'll make 100 new friends at Loyola Day alone and being around a different crowd will just help to facilitate that process.

Sounds quite fun. I don't really wanna go alone, so hopefully I find someone to go, because this looks neat!

Never seen any of this happen at Bishop's, we just get noisy and wild, not hostile. Worst I've seen is our Dean of Student Affairs ask someone to stop yelling "bull****" at a football game

Hypthetically speaking, is it my "job" to bring booze to frosh week (1st year student upcoming) or will they be supplied, because I'm kinda confused by that concept as I drink as much as the next guy around here, but isn't frosh week basically promoting kids to drink even though it's illegal to do so? Don't be too harsh on me, I'm just wondering

Certain events are open bar, while others require that you pay for drinks, but either way, don't bring booze.

The purpose of Frosh week isn't to promote drinking or make an idiot of yourself. The purpose is to get acclimated to the school and to meet as many people. You'll learn quickly that your network is your most valuable tool, whether it be classmates or professionals. Admittedly, much of this is facilitated through events that do involve drinking, but at no point in time are you obligated to drink. We strongly discouraged hazing, so we really just look to put together a fun-filled week where no one feels uncomfortable.

Thanks, thats helpful. Well I saw a sort of itinerary on the site, but none of the events really seemed to involve drinking, was i just reading it wrong or is it supposed to say their is drinking. Just kinda confused by everything lol.
