Need a great way to unwind? Then try howling. No we are not talking about the massive Halloween party. We are talking about the up and coming tradition of Finals Week Howl.
Started in spring of 2006, the founders of the howling started howling at ten o’clock on the Wednesday of finals week in the library to relieve stress and celebrate their love of wolves. To the dismay of the librarian, the howling grew louder for the next ten minutes. The police were called. However, by the time the police arrived everything had quieted to a conducive study environment, with a little less tension.
Since then Howling has only grown in popularity. In order to avoid further confrontations with the law, the founders of Howling are seeking University support. The dream of the founders is for those coming through Sardine Canyon to hear the howling of students letting loose test anxiety at 10 p.m. on the Wednesday of finals week. So no matter where you are on the Wednesday of finals week remember: howl from ten to ten till ten!
