Senior Class President Brian Gordon said that he expects senior events this year to be bigger and better attended than last year's because of the problems facing Greek social life -- namely the new BYOB policy -- and the end of the 250th anniversary celebration. "This should be a lot of fun considering the deterioration of fraternity parties," Gordon said. "It will show the University that there are alternatives for having a good time." Gordon said yesterday that he plans to make many of the senior events this year big parties with live entertainment rather than the usual, smaller gatherings at a local bar. "The screamers won't be geared just toward going out and getting drunk every night," Gordon said. Admission to this Saturday's block party is free, but senior class officers said they plan to charge a $1 cover for future screamers. The revenues,they said, will go to charity. Class treasurer Mike D'Esopo said that weekly screamers will start as soon as officers decide on a location. He said tomorrow night's party will be more accessible to seniors than would a party in a bar. "When you go to a bar, a lot of times it's packed and really uncomfortable," said D'Esopo. "Here, people will be able to hang out, dance, and talk." -- Laura Santini
