If there’s one thing every college student loves, it’s free food. Each week, Vox will highlight a few events to help you survive without a meal plan. Send tips and suggestions to email@example.com.
Because it’s the beginning of the semester, student groups are ready to bribe new members with an overabundance of food. Enjoy the free meals while they last, though; it won’t always be this easy.
Welcome Back, Jack! Now eat.
Everyone’s favorite event to fight over a free shirt is back. Following the Mass of the Holy Spirit on Healy Lawn, the ‘Welcome Back Jack BBQ’ is your first official place this year to get food on Georgetown’s dime—unless of course if you’ve been getting your share of the free NSO food.
The lines will be long—make sure you don’t accidentally stand in the wrong line—but there will be enough food to fill everybody up.
[Editor’s note: The Eucharist at the Mass of the Holy Spirit is not free food. God’s wrath might get us if we encourage that.]
Yee Haw! Welcome Week!
Welcome Week should probably rename itself to Free Food Week—every day has at least one event that includes free food.
But, its Western-style theme won’t limit the food offerings. The Program for Jewish Civilization will offer sushi from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday in ICC 305, green tea ice cream will be provided by the Chinese Student Alliance in the Alumni Lounge on Friday between 3 and 5 p.m., and you can get bubble tea on Saturday from 3 to 5 p.m. in the Alumni Lounge compliments of the Taiwanese American Student Association.
(Believe it or not, there’s even more free food out there this week. Check out the Welcome Week schedule for the rest, including a handful of BBQs, a picnic, a s’mores night, and a late night county fair.)
