Grubfest gets a little dirty

Every fall semester, students get to participate in the dirtiest event of the year: Grubfest. For those of you who are unaware of what Grubfest is, you missed out.

Basically, Georgetown gets a fire truck to come make a mud pit out of a section of the quad. Then, students have the chance to throw mud at each other and battle to the death in a friendly game of tug-o-war between residence halls.

In previous years there have been a few events scattered across the quad involving food.

For example, one year there was a spaghetti mop relay where a mop head was covered with spaghetti sauce and then quickly passed from one teammate to the next. There have also been such obstacles as sticking your arms into a five-gallon bucket of yogurt to find all of the pieces of a Mr. Potato Head and then putting him together as a team. This year the food-inspired events were nixed. However, Student Life added a few things.

This year there was a dunking booth where members of Student Life could be dunked by students. They also provided a giant inflatable slip-n-slide.

Even though the weather was a bit chilly, students came out and participated.
