Eastman School orientation candlelight ceremony attempts to appease SLC spirits

In a circle of flame, Eastman's Freshmen fail to satisfy SLC spirits

Day Two of College, Thursday 9:15 p.m. The Eastman Freshman Class is herded into the Student Living Center courtyard. The sophomore and junior guides instruct their students to form a circle while distributing and lighting a candle per person. As confusion and unease settles into the Freshmen, the Eastman Chieftain addresses the students.

The Chieftain and his guides begin to lead the chanting of The Genesee. The unknowing first years' nervous murmur stir the Student Living Center Spirits' summer slumber. Like their future Music Theory TAs, the Student Living Center Spirits expect a chanting with enthusiasm and dynamics. Worth noting, however, the SLC Spirits do give a grand scale of mercy to the Music School Freshmen; they do not expect 'fixed do' solfège or tenor/alto clef chantings of The Genesee. The Student Living Center Spirits are nonetheless disappointed by the performance and prepare their vengeance on the Eastman dorms.

The Mice Infestation Spirit, the Rubbery Salad Spirit, the Falling Ceiling Panels Spirit, the 0 People Let Off on Junior Off-Campus Lottery Spirit, and several others, all prepare to unleash their unabated wrath unto this year's dorm residents as they have in years past.
