Save swing night

Joshua Gaston | Wednesday, March 21, 2012

I bear grave tidings. Swing Night at Legends has been downgraded to a Thursday and could stand a chance to be eliminated entirely next semester due to last semester’s attendance. I express the opinion that last semester was a fluke. Swing Night has always been an easy free way for the students here to experience swing dancing and has always been a blast since I have been here. A Thursday nightclub event does not do it justice, for it drives away the people who have class and work due Friday. This night is supposed to be available for everyone, not just diehards who will come no matter when it is. We have to get this night back to the weekend, but we can only do that by showing up to this one TONIGHT. I call for the suspension of work and sleep for just one measly hour from 12 to 1. Use this time to come to Legends and show that a weekend Swing Night is necessary, and, furthermore, that it is impossible to be contained on a Thursday. The night is ours for the claiming. Come take it.
