Wow. Gonna go have a talk with my son about this since he goes to CMU. They have other ways to bond rather than that BS.

I always thought the yearly walk up the hill was good for them.

A chance for them to meet and chat with their new class members while walking.

My daughter enjoyed it, but complained about the effort after.

I just went upstairs and mentioned it to my son. He said yeah, but maybe engineering will keep some of it in some ways as some bonding is good like being a big brother and sister, but he is not sure at this point how this will be spun. I don't think they will discontinue the walk, but they will certainly thumbs down on the points taken that if it resembles a conditioning like the Government and Regime like to be done, then they will definitely turn their heads the other way on it. These kids are so so anti regime and the other thing that it will and the feeling will never be put down the you know who.

 

BTW. My son is not in engineering. Just mentioned it.

 

CMU is actually kind of low key for this and the hazing anyway. Nice friendly school. My son on his first year played on the his department of Major's basketball team against all the other departments like a league competition. I think this is one thing they will keep as is a good thing, and fun for mom an dad to watch. The players are made up of all years.

 

For the walk up the hill, unless CV19 stops it, it will probably go on. Bonding between all the schools.

My 26 year old daughter did it, my son already did it, and I expect my little girl will do it next year for her first year. Now she will be seriously complaining.

I figured you enjoyed it for other reasons, aka yearly sponsorships 🙂
