Lots of Queens around this year: Homecoming Queen, Mardi Gras Queen, Frosh Queen: in fact, two rival Frosh Queens (almost). The Frosh Undergraduate Society protested when one of the fraternities announced that they were anointing the Frosh Queen. That’s just your Fraternity’s Queen, said the official Frosh; we’re going to choose our own. In the end, however, the official Frosh backed down, so no one ended up in the Tower, thankfully.
Not for the first or last time, both Council and the complained about a lack of student interest in the running of the Society, noting the number of Council seats that were filled by acclamation.
