Bright and early, we were up and rolling to MUN. At about 9:20 am, us and two hundred MUN engineering students piled onto party buses on our to the middle of nowhere Newfoundland.
They call it D-Day. The exact origins are milady questionable. But it is an event that has been happening every term for over twenty years. It is now secret. Despite it being a Friday, most profs just cancel class or do simple reviews, because they know whats going on.
So what exactly is it? Simply put, they drive 200 engineering students out to a campsite in the bush as 9:00 am. Then pick them up around 4:00 pm. Oh, and there’s also a U-haul with 350 cases of beer. Everyone gets a D-Day cup, which they then pour the beer into. This limits the mess of empties everywhere.
Along with the beer, there is the ten gallons of chilli that we made yesterday. 400 hundred hot dogs then round out the meal.
“Beer, beer, beer everywhere”
