Itâ€™s Quack! tradition, though weâ€™re a little late this time. Every year we post a short article to welcome all the small, scared looking first years we see roaming around the campus trying to hide from their seniors. But since ragging has been officially banned (again) I guess we can hope that you all wonâ€™t be in hiding anymore. Come out, come out wherever you are!
So itâ€™s been a week since you joined TIP. Youâ€™ve probably found your way around campus, unless youâ€™re like me and still canâ€™t tell where the classrooms are situated. You might have even tried making friends with a few seniors, and if youâ€™re a nice looking girl Iâ€™m sure a few seniors might have tried making friends with you. Thereâ€™s also a huge chance youâ€™re already bankruptâ€¦ragging is banned, extortion isnâ€™t. But donâ€™t worry, the following weeks are a lot more stable and youâ€™ll be able to figure out who you want to know and who you donâ€™t. Youâ€™ll build friendships, break them; get straight Aâ€™s, fail miserably, become popular or become a pariah. First year can make or break youâ€¦
Iâ€™m kidding; itâ€™s not such a big deal.
Just remember, these days wonâ€™t come again. Enjoy your first year here. Be as crazy, spontaneous and carefree as you can be because Heaven knows you wonâ€™t have time for it afterwards. And remember that Quack! is your forum. This is your
Hyde Park and your Speakeasy. So anything you wish to say, to the student body, the faculty or the administration, say it here. Here you can Quack! to your heartâ€™s content!
And once again, have a great year!
