The need for students to be wary as 4/20 and Fun Day approach
The onset of spring brings excitement to the student body not only because of the warm weather after a dreary and prolonged winter but also the occurrence of events like Fun Day and Earth Day, the latter which will be celebrated on 4/20 this year. While these events are part of Skidmore’s traditions and are two of the more enjoyable events of the semester, they also often serve as an impetus for drug and alcohol abuse . As these events approach, we should consider the substance abuse that has occurred in the past during these events and more recently in our community. Furthermore, we need to consider what we want these approaching events to look like and how we want them to reflect on ourselves and our college.
