You can probably guess what my reaction to this tweet was:
Welcome. You’ll all be alcoholics by October 🍻 https://t.co/UxP7NFG23I

Sure, it’s funny, particularly because it stands in stark contrast to Fredonia’s tweet. But the problem is that several of them actually will become alcoholics, or alcohol abusers, as a direct result of being surrounded by people who think binge drinking is just great.
Faculty and staff are limited in how much they can change a campus’s culture. At some point a student who cares–a student who wants much more from her college experience– must stand up and say, “This isn’t good enough.”
I had higher hopes for this Twitter account, but alas, the easy route is still well-trodden.
