This will be a great way for all of us to see the city, get to know one another, and enjoy ourselves before the year starts, so hopefully we get a good turnout!

I will probably order the Cardinals tickets in the next few days. I know we still have a while before we get down there and we can iron out the details in August, but I want to make sure I get enough tickets. My biggest concern is that the tickets I have my eye on are gone when I go to order them. Buying early is definitely the way to go so we are sure we have enough.

The Details:
-Cardinals game against the Milwaukee Brewers
-August 17 at 7:15
-Tickets will be $21 each (The service fees pushed it to $21)
-Will probably go to Mike Shannon's restaurant or Paddy O's (two popular pre-game hangouts) for some beers and hot dogs before the game.
-Whoever wants to go down to Laclede's Landing or a casino after the game is welcome to come. (I know I will be there!)

I can buy 18 tickets that are pretty much together (and I might be able to snag a few more in the same area). The tickets are in the bleachers, and 12 are in one row and 6 are in another row. As of now, I have 12 tickets taken:

The Honorable Romothesavior
NU Jet- 2
Strato- 1 or 2
Panadera
Ec2xs
Jtow
Robin
Myq
Mazzini
Ziggystardust
Jcougar

If you are going, please confirm!!! And did I miss anyone who said they wanted to go? Anyone else interested who hasn't told me yet? Camstant? Steph? Nyyankees?

Let me know if you are interested so I can buy the tickets, and enjoy the rest of your summer. Can't wait to meet everyone and start in the fall!


Me!!!!!


BTW, flow: I'll turn 29 during our first semester. Let's kick it.

Romo, unfortunately I won't be able to make it anymore since I'll just be moving in then.

However, I think it'd be nice to get some people together the weekend before orientation starts if people are interested. :D

I hear ya. It's 2:30 am right now, and I can't sleep... 2 more hours until the real finals: Germany vs. Spain, although the Netherlands final is bound to be great too.

I say Germany.

JTOW, just noticed we have the same number of posts... irrelevance high five!!!

your age radar is malfunctioning. I only estimate one of them to be over 25 and that's only because of his hairline.
The median age at WULAW is 23 and I expect that to be on the younger side of 23 this year because of all the "in this economy" garbage.

as a 27yr old, I feel like I'm gonna be one of the old-folks.

Lol I never said that, and I'm not 25 :)

I am 29, so I feel like an old fart. You still will have graduated pretty much by the time you are 30.

I just don't like banks in general. I have never had a good experience with any of them. I've been using credit unions for the past 10 years basically. Does Wash U have a credit union? Are there any credit unions in St. Louis that people have used?

I found the housing day to be really informative, I hope you do too!

Hey guys new to the forum. Way too much to catch up on, don't you guys have lives? I joke. The real reason I finally cracked and created an account though is because I have been looking for a one bedroom apartment for a few weeks and haven't found much, so I'm expanding my horizons. Anybody still looking for a roommate perhaps? I found a few nice two bedrooms in my search, and thought I'd reach out here. I'm at work so I can't sit on this forum and take pm's, so email me if you're interested and we can talk further.

My name is Mike, and my email is mcroghan@slu.edu.


Thanks

Agreed, I use a credit union here and I hear they are much better. Although the downside of switching to a credit union in St. Louis is that after 3 years, you may or may not still be in St. Louis.
