Personally, I can think of fewer things that University students enjoy more than being whole heartedly involved in a vast smattering of extra curriculars, and, more generally, partying.

Luckily, for this highly esteemed community, we will soon combine our love for philanthropy and (inebriating) festivities into one event.

This Saturday, Pancakes for Parkinson’s is hosting a bar night at Coupe’s from 7-10 pm. Leading up to the event wristbands will be sold on the Lawn, and then that night at the door for $4. Along with general admittance, long-sleeve ($12) and short-sleeve ($9) P4P shirts will be available for purchase.
