MacCPW, et al.
CPW is officially over! The CPW weather machine ended up pulling through, and it's a sunny Fahrenheit 63 as I type this on Sunday afternoon.
Welcome to my dorm's implementation of CPW!
MAC.0001: Introduction to MacGregor House
MacGregor House is the West Campus dorm between Burton Conner (or actually No. 6) and New House. It's the tall one that looks like a hospital because that aesthetic was chic in 1970 when MacG was built. It consists of nine entries, A-J (minus I because it's ~imaginary~), in a highrise stack (A-E) and a lowrise block (F-J). It's mostly singles with three doubles in F entry (my home). About half of us are on the meal plan, while the rest cook for themselves in our suite kitchens (or more realistically pay for other people to cook better food and deliver it to them). Much of Mollie B. '06's post re:MacG remains true, but I may need to update some of the details soon.
And now for the main event.
CPW 2017 Events
A Entry: Roll with the A Dogs
The people of A invited prefrosh to meet residents and eat snax. (I don't have pics of this one because tbh I was asleep. A entry people are pretty cool though. They're sporty.)
B Entry: Be Chill followed by No Chill
Eat pancakes with B-eople and then play those icebreaker lying games with them.
C Entry: Movies Against Humanity
SnaCks, Cheesy movies, and Cards against Humanity. Talk about Chill.
D Entry: A Night in the Lounge
The first opportunity to chill and eat with MacGregor people. I missed it (smh bad blogger), so no pics for you. My sources tell me that D residents have a similar vibe to B and F, but that could be up for debate.
E Entry: Protobowl and Produce and SNL and Brownies
Billed as "the only fruits and veggies you might find all CPW", Protobowl and Produce sounds great for restoring vitality after a long night of self-(con?)destructive CPW crashing. I went to SNL and Brownies instead, for obvious reasons.
F Entry: Frilled Cheese
This one expanded my worldview in relation to grilled cheese. Avocado? Peanut butter? Bacon? We know how to simultaneously lure in and scare away some prefrosh.
G Entry: Netflix and Chill and Smash and Cheese
During in-house rush, I was told that the G unofficially stood for "Gaming". And while that's not for me, it's probably for a lot of you. Just ask the room full of prefrosh who showed up to play Smash on some old school TVs in MacGregor Dining Hall.
H Entry: Creative Cooking with H Entry
Learn how to survive and thrive in a cook-for-yourself community. H offered up some kitchens and some residents to show off to some hungry prefrosh.
J Entry: Murder Mystery and Memes and Cereal
I personally thought J won at MacGregor CPW events this year. I got to check out the Murder Mystery dinner but missed eating cereal and watching Important Videos with J.
