Raising your right wrist at the Rat is as common as buying a pitcher of beer. The sole on-campus bar uses wristbands on the right hand as a system for verifying the legal age to drink alcohol.

Greek events continue at the Rathskeller

While the new Rathskeller still incorporates many elements of the old, one feature is glaringly missing – the stage. “The stage is definitely what I will miss most about the old Rat,” said Ashley Drake, president of the Panhellenic Association and a server at the Rat.

Renovations mark new era

Upon returning to campus last fall, students discovered something new: the University Center’s (UC) second floor International Lounge had a small addition, or rather, a big one: a 2,500 square foot white storage box, easily the size of a one-bedroom apartment.
