Wafflefest TONIGHT at 8:00!

Sunday, December 14th, 2014

Nothing you eat at Wafflefest will look like this.

Do you want to enjoy a meal without having to lie your way swipe in to dhall? Then swing by your only favorite dining hall between 8:00 and 11:00 tonight for Wafflefest, co-sponsored by yo’ waffle daddies on SGA’s Committee on Student Life and Dining Services!

If you’re (still) new here, Wafflefest is a beloved tradition here at Skidmore. You know, like Fun Day. Or complaining about not getting into Wesleyan (did I make that joke already??), but with more waffles. Lots more waffles. And dessert pizza. And doughnuts. And salad–if you, like me, are trying to keep an eye your carb intake.

It’s totally free to all students. But the line is always hella long, so you should definitely show up before 8:00 or have one of your pals keep you posted on what the line looks like. And it will be insanely packed, so have one of said pals grab you a seat. And it’ll be noisy. Real noisy. Utter chaos. Los Elk will probably be playing.

To be honest, it’s a super stressful experience (ever seen Full Metal Jacket?) but you really can’t say no to free food, and it’s kind of a rite of passage. Plus this is like the last “thing” going on this semester, so ring in the end of the semester (or beginning of finals, if you’re a masochist) with some comfort food. You’re gonna need it.

Just kidding.

(Editor’s Note: No he’s not.)

WAFFLEFEST!!!!!!! Is not tomorrow.

Saturday, May 5th, 2012

Tomorrow is definitely NOT the most anticipated D-Hall event of the semester, free for all students. DON’T go to the Food Dome (new nickname for the dining hall– start saying it now so everyone knows you were ahead of the crowd) from 8-10:30PM tomorrow night. There will definitely be NO music being played by Bo Beep and the Funk Sheep.

So whatever you do: DO NOT take a break from your studies and stuff your face with breakfast for dinner.

The more I look at this picture, the less I know if I like it only ironically or not.

Wafflefest Is Happening! Wafflefest Is Free!

Not Actual D-Hall Waffles

Skidmore’s lauded finals week institution, Wafflefest, returns this year in all its former, free glory.

After hours of negotiations SGA and Dining Services have struck some sort of backroom deal and made the delicious event free for every Skidmore student, they’ve even gone the extra mile and hired The Downlow to play some music. Show up, eat some waffles, take a few moments to forget that your academic and professional future rests on your ability to craft comprehensible sentences at 3am, and enjoy yourself.

Tuesday Dec. 14th from 8:00-11:00pm
