*Disclaimer: I harbor no animosity towards Miami University of Ohio. I simply want to address some of the inaccuracies and unnecessarily rude comments within the mentioned article.
Dear “contributing Drunken Undergrad writer” whom I cannot formally address due to a lack of signature on your piece,
To begin, you should probably know that this is not the first Green Beer Day that Ohio University has participated in. Additionally, to address your comment referring to Ohio University as “a university on the decline,” Ohio University’s latest enrollment numbers reflect yet another year of record growth and Ohio University has recently opened yet another regional campus in Dublin, Ohio. In the future, please do your research before making false statements on the internet due to a lack of informed research.
Secondly, Green Beer Day is the most insignificant of any of Ohio University’s spectacular social events. Our local establishments holding the event is in no way meant to “compete” with the event at Miami in the eyes of the majority of our students. Even if you were to compare the two, I can’t imagine any person who would prefer to spend their Green Beer Day amongst such catty and unpleasant individuals as yourself.
So please, for the sake of every student at your school, step off of your high horse and make some effort to stop perpetuating the stereotypes that have become known as the personality of Miami students; it’s really not fair to the abundance of intelligent and kind students who attend your school, several of whom I am close friends with.
You can have your Green Beer Day; we’ll keep the numerous other amazing events we get to experience with people who don’t make their goal in life to demean others for the sake of establishing a “superior reputation.”
If you ever feel like experiencing the goodness and glory that is a real party at Ohio University, feel free to stop by my “trailer,” my roommates and I would be happy to have you.
Ohio University Senior
