Saturday night in Gannett, The Sketchies will show you what they’ve been up to all semester when they present “Fraternity Leave,” their big show of the semester. Their set at Triple Threat included a sketch about a burger joint that doubles as an abortion clinic, so that might give you a sense of what to expect. Or maybe not. If that doesn’t do it for you, The Sketchies have included an invitation on the event’s Facebook group:
Dear Pledge Scum,
Your presence is requested at Gannett Auditorium on November 15th at 10:30pm. Bring yourself. Bring some friends. But most of all, scrub, bring an open heart.
Peace, love, and hugs,
Holy shit. This is kind of terrifying. I’m in. Is this what being in a fraternity or sorority is like? Am I guaranteed to test higher on the Rosenburg Self-Esteem Scale? Anyway, there will probably be something dancing. There will likely be white people dressed in all black. There will be likely be something strange and off-putting in all the right ways. But you might love it. So grab your bros and biddies, pre-game to the EDM playlist on Spotify premium (seriously, the student discount is quite a steal), and swing by Gannett for the initiation you went to this type of school to avoid.
