Title

Article "Some Students Skip the Pig Roast Festivities"

Description

This article focuses on the social event and atmosphere surrounding Pig Roast. Although predominantly Greek life “based”, Pig Roast is open to the whole university community. Despite this fact, many students outside of Greek life are reluctant to attend because of moral and/or personal reasons, different friend groups, or merely a lack of interest. Division I athletes, especially, voiced their experiences and opinions within the social scene on campus and how, “they do not feel as if they would fit in, based on the behavior and clothing that the event is known for.” Many non-Greek individuals stated that events such as Pig Roast was not for everyone and found alternative events that were more appealing than day-drinking. Resident Assistants and Cultural Advisors hosted events in order to provide additional options for students.
