I, and 20,000 other university people, just got an email from our vice chancellor that a certain section of campus has been rented out for "a private function" on Saturday and Sunday. Apparently, "Individuals not authorized to be in the area will be asked to leave." It then proceeds to tell us how, for our safety, we will not be allowed to use such and such gates, such and such roads, such and such parking lots, and even details the individual staircases that we may not use. All for a mysterious "private function."
Now, I had no plans to go anywhere near this area of campus this weekend, but, suddenly, I do. What could they possibly have going on that doesn't allow a student to walk to their dorm for two days straight? (They've arranged a special shuttle to transport the trapped students.) If this is anyone less important than the Vice-President, I'm going to be disappointed. I gotta crash this party.
