Thursday night for the average person is just another normal night during the week. Most people have to wake up and go to work, and for grammar school students they have to wake up and attend school the next day. But for the college community/ students Thursdays has its own special meaning. Usually people classify Friday as being the day in which their weekend begins, but for most college students Thursdays marks the day in which the weekend begins.Most college students do not take classes on Fridays, and if they do many do not attend.
The college community calls Thursdays by its own special name “Thirsty Thursdays”! I do not know where the name came from or when it started but this name has been around the college community for quite some time now. I have older cousins who attended college and have told me that this name was still used while they were in school. Thirsty Thursdays marks the day in which many college students get drunk and either go out our hang out with their friends. I am guessing that because of the heavy drinking that occurs on Thursdays is the reason why the day is called “Thirsty Thursdays”.
If you are a college student and do not go out on Thursdays, try taking a drive or walk around your school and see how many people you see dressed up and ready to go out. Last night was “Thirsty Thursday” and I decided to take a cruise around Corvallis to see just how many people are out. I found that there were a good amount of people out either walking around or at bars/clubs. The term”Thirsty Thursdays” is a funny term but is perfect for the activities that occur.
