I can’t believe the over blown media coverage Queen’s University homecoming still gets. Read it here.
In my opinion that is most of the problem. The masses do not have good memories, however if you keep bringing up these stories it just adds more fuel. When I was attending uni there, the majority of the people attending this event were not actually Queen’s students, but people coming from other universities to attend the “legendary festivities.”
I know people reading this might disagree, and I’m not condoning the actions, from previous years at all, but fuck the coverage of all the shenanigans is just ridiculous, and most of it has been blown out of portion. The best part about the article was the map, and the descriptions.
“On any given night, Queen’s students flock to a handful of bars and clubs at the Corner of Princess and Division street. Fights and rampant intoxication are commonplace.”
The worse fight I ever witnessed at Queen’s were two pop collars yelling at each over who cut in line at a Starbucks.
I used to live in the “Hub” a few blocks from Aberdeen street.
