Bring Back Purple Day
For the past twenty or so years, Laurentian Engineering has taken pride in their traditions and celebrated 'Purple Day' for all of the first year engineering students. This day gives students a chance to get to know their classmates, their seniors and their traditions. It is what makes the engineering program such a tight-knit community, and it is something every student looks forward to each year.
The day is voluntary for all students, and is run by student volunteers and student donations. This year, the event was proposed to be away from campus in order to cut down on noise and disruption. The most important detail (the purple dye) was also remove in place of washable purple spray. We, the students, have made extensive efforts to try and appease the schools administration.
However, the entire idea of this day is being challenged by the administration on the basis of "blue green algae at the beach location, lack of lifeguards, and lack of security".
This day is a tradition, and it will be supervised by multiple adult students. We request your support in keeping this day alive as it is the one thing that makes every Laurentian Engineer... a Laurentian Engineer.
