Today is Unofficial St. Patrick’s Day @ U of I. As dumb as loud and obnoxious as people can get on a day like this, surprisingly, I actually LIKE Unofficial. It’s one of those days when campus is REALLY fun, always buzzing. There are never this many people out on campus on a weekday, let alone a FRIDAY!? For those who don’t know, the tradition started a few years back because the real St. Patrick’s Day was to fall during Spring Break. Since everyone has to the need to get drunk with their friends on St. Patrick’s Day, the bars created an Unofficial day to celebrate. They open really early and people start getting drunk as early as 6am. Anyway, it’s just one of those things that EVERYONE on campus knows about and gets excited about whether they drink or not. We’ve got creative shirts everywhere, everyone wearing green, and the buses reek of booze (oh, wait… that’s a bad thing). Really though, as long as people aren’t drinking and driving, or gettin’ hit by sober drivers, UnOFfIcial is a good time. Cheers!
