La Salle’s beloved Blue and Gold dining hall will be changing up its menu for April Fool’s day. Aramark, the food distributor for La Salle, has decided to give B&G a day off of using their food, allowing the dining hall to create whatever menu they want. Naturally, they have taken inspiration from what was trending on Twitter last week, by adding “Cinnamon Toast Crunch Shrimp” to their menu for Thursday night. McDonald’s has teamed up with La Salle for the night and is providing McRibs to be served, as the local McDonald’s has not sold enough in the past couple of weeks and needs to get rid of them.
For the vegetarian option, an anonymous source stated that “we don’t know how to make any good vegetarian options, so we will just be serving broccoli to the non-meat-eating students.” Unfortunately, B&G’s budget only allowed them to supply two drinks for the night, which will be the newly controversial marshmallow Pepsi (which should have been branded as Peepsi, but Pepsi missed that opportunity) and Doritos flavored Mountain Dew. Finally, dessert will be Jell-O salad consisting of all the leftovers from the previous two weeks that B&G didn’t want to throw out because it would be considered “wasteful.”
The University has also closed down any other on-campus food options for the night, so all students who wish to have the University provide dinner for them on Thursday night must eat at B&G. Enjoy your meal, I guess…
In 2009, Ubisoft created the iconic video game “Just Dance,” which has been loved by people all over the world as they attempt to dance along to their favorite songs. 12 years later, La Salle University became one of the first universities to create a Division One “Just Dance” team. All A10 schools will be creating “Just Dance” teams to start competing against each other in Fall 2021. According to potential captain Claire Kunzier, “As of right now, Saint Joe’s looks like our biggest competition. I heard Maddie Ziegler is going to be their first captain.”
The “Just Dance” team was created by the new president, Frank Reynolds, as another way to attract potential students to La Salle. Instead of wasting money on creating this team, they should have just put that money into making the residence halls or the food better, which is probably a better strategy to attract potential students and retain current ones (but that’s none of my business).
Kunzier also mentioned the try-out process, which will begin next week. Any student who is interested in trying out for this historical team can join Kunzier in the IBC on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. When asked about what the try-out process would look like, Kunzier said “first we will have all the potential dancers compete against each other by selecting a random song from Just Dance 2, and the winners will then have to beat my high score in the dance ‘Rasputin’ by Boney M.”
