That's awfully pushy of you. Things happen, no need to get all up in people's grills for that.
Who cares? Orientation is so poorly done anyways, and leader retreats are boring.
OP here, I meant for this to be light hearted. I had fun at my retreat and really was sad when a lot of people on team didn't show up for either retreat because I was looking forward to meeting them. I would be kind of bummed if I missed it.
I kind of agree with OP. Nobody on my team showed up, so I'm going to have to meet them all AT O-week. I'm super-excited for it, it's going to be a lot of fun! Also, my retreat was awesome, I really enjoyed it :)
which faculty are you referring to?
O-week always manages to suck so hard.
I missed it, but I had a good excuse. I was kind of sad, but oh well, what can you do
@2, @6, what year are you in again? Does this event even apply to you in any way shape or form? Unless you have a wristband, you're just another awkward loser on campus 1 week early, trash talking about orientation sucking. Maybe it does for you but its an icebreaker for 6000 people who've never been to Waterloo. Thank goodness because they aren't all condescending twats like yourselves.
who fucking cares. o-week is a joke.
Some people love o-week and some people don't. There's no reason why you need to convince someone else of your own personal opinion. But I feel that if someone does sign up to be a leader it is because they enjoyed it. They made a commitment and they should honour their commitment by attending a leader retreat if they are around for that term and there aren't any extenuating circumstances.
@8, The week itself without classes is great, but the events and activities held by the school for Orientation week is garbage. As a first year, I made friends and got to know people through drinking my face off, not by playing the human knot.
I was fucking your gf, just sayin
