What's the policy on eating/drinking?

Postby magicman554 » Wed Feb 16, 2011 3:55 pm

In class. What if I show up with a hamburger and french fries, and a beer. Is this okay?

what if the hamburger is in a wrapper and the beer is in a discrete water bottle? No fries.

What about a plastic water bottle full of vodka? Is that sort of thing frowned upon?

Aromatic foods are distracting and annoying, but lots of people eat in class in my school. Everybody seems to love the smelly soup they serve in the cafe.

generally food is probably allowed, though it could be frowned upon if its distracting (think bag of chips or sloppy food when you sit close to others)...really just use common sense here, like if you were in a <100 person class in ugrad...

drinking alcohol would not be okay in class however

This. While I am sure most prof's will let you eat, think snacks, not a entire lunch like hamburgers and fries. Lectures don't have room service for a reason. Although, if a law school did, I would go there unconditionally :D

I fucking hate you specifically, and people like you in general. Do. Not. Eat. In. Class. Class is for learning and paying attention. I don't want to listen to you chew your cud like a goddamn animal while I'm trying to grasp abstract concepts. Don't do it. I'll fucking kill you if you do.

Lick my butt, I'll do whatever I want. I am going to bring a hamburger on the first day of class.


And what's this about alcohol? Isn't everyone in LS old enough to decide if they want to drink during the day? What does that have to do with class anyway, as long as you're not making a scene?

Not that I would do this, but at my undergrad it was sort of a tradition to bring a beer to the last day of class.

But yea, anything distracting is pretty rude.

Yes, they are old enough to decide this. However, law school is a professional school. How professional would that look? If you were out at a business lunch, having a beer if fine. But if it was an in-office lunch in the conference room, I would stay away from the alcohol. In this case, law school is more similar to the latter.

I know you're probably just looking for some entertainment in this thread, with the beer questions etc., but on a serious note, I despise people eating in class next to me, as well as near me on the silent floor of the library. I have been harrassed for being a stick in the mud on other threads, but I don't care. It bothers me and I can't help it.

How hard is it to go 2 hours without stuffing your face? Do you realize even if you are one of the rare few who chew with your mouth shut, that everyone can still hear all the action going on in your mouth? Every bite, chomp, and swallow is a disgusting distraction. Don't even get me started on the smells. Americans can't walk 3 steps without eating anymore. Put down the snacks! Bring a water bottle!

I like snacks as much as the next guy, but I can go for a few hours without them. I take advantage of the opportunity to walk out of the library, and either to the cafeteria our even outside for some fresh air and to enjoy a snack. Please keep your food out of the classroom and the library. I know you and many others won't, but I'd like to go on record with my request.

You know, it's exactly this sort of anti-Americanism that's destroying our law schools. I'm glad GW didn't live to see the day when Americans can't even be fat and eat in an LS classroom without being persecuted by dildos. This is the same crap that created the ACLU, and all that liberal malarkey going on behind the scenes. We have a right to eat! Now you want to take that away too? Kiss it.

I am not a stickler by any means, but I always hated it whenever someone was eating a bag of chips in class. Not only are chips the loudest food to consume, but they also come with a nifty, loud-ass bag. This shouldn't be a question of policy, but a question of politeness. Regardless of what the letter of the law is in the particular classroom, it is disrespectful to the rest of the class for you to eat a bag of chips or other smelly, messy foods. Is it OK to bring a (non-alcoholic) drink? yeah. Is it OK to bring a stanky slice from the Pizza Hut in the UC? Not with me.
