RPC Presents: Screw-Yer-Roommate – September 9th, 2016

SYR Event.png

It’s that time of year! Screw-Yer-Roommate is here!

For those of you who don’t know how Screw works – here’s the lowdown. You set your roommate up on a blind date which means you have the fate of their date in your hands. Look in your classes, go through the first look book, search at parties, stalk on Facebook, and of course, keep an eye out in Club Fondy for the perfect person. Once you find someone you want to screw-yer-roommate over with, talk to that person’s roommate to see if he/she is available and coordinate costumes that they can wear to find each other (for example… salt and pepper, a pirate and a parrot, the titanic and an iceberg). Be creative! Then come to Academic Quad at 5:00 PM on September 9th as Willy watches you find your screw date followed by dinner in a group with you, your date, and other couples.

In the event of rain, Screw will be moved to the Grand Hall. Check back here for rain plan updates. If you have any questions, please feel free contact the RPC Socials at socials.rpc@gmail.com.

Happy Screwing!
