Times Change


With this week's issue of the Essex University Student Union newspaper, The Rabbit, comes a 4-page advertisement for the Student Union's Summer Ball. One of the pages is devoted to the opinions of students who have attended previous Summer Balls. Six of them get their pictures in the paper, along with descriptions of their best Summer Ball memory and favourite part of the Summer Ball.

Here's what Susie, second year Sociology, had to say:

Hmm. When I was a student, we'd stay up till 6am and beyond several times a year, just talking to each other about ideas, life, philosophy, politics, ... If Susie's first awake-until-dawn experience was from attending the Summer Ball, I guess students must not do this any more.

Times change.
