The Parents Are Here! The Parents Are Here!

How does MiddBlog know?

1. It is impossible to drive through town.
2. There is no available parking on-campus.
3. I have had 2.5 brushes with death while crossing the street.
4. There has been a sudden increase of people aged 40-65 and the student to faculty ratio has not improved.

H'ok so. Now that you have successfully completed Steps 1-5, as outlined below, you have to figure out what to do with the family over the next 72 fun-filled hours. That is a long time, my friends, and MiddBlog is here to help.

Atwater Commons Reception, 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. in Allen Lounge

The Pumpkin Tumble, 3:30 to 6 p.m. on Battell Beach: "Come hang out with mini-donks, try your skills at an eating contest, race pumkins up and down a hill and listen to some sweet old-time music at the Mountain Club's annual Pumpkin Tumble." OMG MINI DONKS!!!1!

Two Americas: Income Inequality in the United States, 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. in RAJ. How appropriate for Parents Weekend!

Open Hip-Hop Classes by Riddim, 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. in Coltrane Lounge. Someone please take your parents to this. And then send the pictures to MiddBlog [at] gmail [dot] com. You will be handsomely rewarded with a tray, salt 'n pepper shakers, and a bottle of juice.
