Every first year Bucknell students has experience the bubble phenomenon known as the “hook-up culture”. This type of relationship seems to be spreading throughout campus and taking control of the a large percentage of the student population. This type of relationship is leaving some Bucknell students with the desire of a more meaningful relationship. One would ask why do students subject themselves to all of the hassle of an awkward wake-up, “walk of shame”, and the stories that others spread. These activities can lead to some pretty embarrassing nicknames.
This is the one thing I would change because it would seem that this phenomenon is spreading but students just complain and don’t change any of their actions. Though I don’t have any good ideas or simple solutions to this problem it one thing that has bothered me since arriving on campus. Every Sunday, almost like clock work, I sit in the caf and listen to everyone’s story and who they hooked up and how awkward it was. These stories pile up and can be pretty amusing it does get very repetative hearing pretty much the same thing every weekend. Though I would agree that this is an important of the college learning experience, but does it have to be every weekend?
