Bates College administrators squash popular Halloween-time party @insidehighered
Is it a stretch to think that if these were low-income students, this would be considered as something pathological and detrimental to their success rather than “rowdy”?
Hundreds of students participate in a college with an enrollment of less than 1800.
“But complaints about rowdy behavior were especially prevalent during Trick or Drink, when hundreds of students would walk in large groups throughout the neighborhood.
During the event, seniors living off-campus decorate their houses based on certain themes. They sell tickets to underclassmen, who socialize with older students and sample a different drink at each stop.”
