Cushing Doesn't Quit With Scantily Clad

A Cushing tipster has just informed us that a group of Cushing residents wants to keep the Scantily Clad tradition alive by coming to this weekend's DayGlo/Toga Party, well, scantily clad. They are also encouraging others to do the same.

"Day-glo panties are way better than day-glo togas," the tipster tells Mads.

Update: Mat Leonard '11, the Cushing President, writes: "I don't know who said that, but it is not true. THIS IS NOT SCANTILY CLAD. Cushing does NOT want people to treat it as such."

There you have it.

You all do realize that you can wear a toga right? You show up to every party and there are people acting stupid and it doesn't mean you have to do the same. Wear a toga and let them deal with getting paint out of every nook and cranny.

scantily clad was a part of cushing tradition brought back in 2005, after a one-year hiatus that resulted in (oh god, anyone else remember?) the travesty known as "the nothing party."

it's unlike any other party and when party-goers and party planners are responsible, scantily clad (or SCOR, as it was formerly known, scantily-clad-o-rama) is just a really big underwear party with loud music and bouncy joust/twister. i don't think the 2005 party was an eighth as raunchy as what happened in 2007.

somehow, between 2005 and 2007, the party turned into the most disgusting thing on vassar campus other than the formerly unlit back wall of the mug. thank god for renovations.

maybe cushing should quit.

or at least examine why SCOR needed to be stopped. maybe vassar's no longer responsible enough to handle a party like SCOR. maybe the administration should be more honest and up front about sexual assault and rape statistics. maybe SCOR's not the problem at all.

9:51; unfortunately you're right. If sexual assaults are going to happen on campus, it won't matter if you're wearing underwear or sweatpants. It's a problem that goes way deeper than clothes.

Hey Guys, I don't know who said that, but it is not true. THIS IS NOT SCANTILY CLAD. Cushing does NOT want people to treat it as such. Please, don't spread lies.

It may not be scantily clad, but I'm still excited for this day-glow thing.

Togas and paint? Sound cool enough

who's the hottie with the body??

the problem really all stems to the lack of air conditioning in the Cushing MPR. The less sweat, the more lighting= the less SCOR becomes a Tableu Vivant of Delacroix's "Death of Sardanapalus."

Toga's and oil paint anyone?

I <3 the Delacroix reference. If only it didn't so accurately describe the reality last year!
