“I’m looking forward to Bed Races. I should have a really fun time watching everyone. I have mixed feelings about it being an away game, but that’s OK because it should be a home game my senior year — I hope.” – Arturo Alejandro, ’20

“I am in the Marching 97, so I will definitely be attending the game this Saturday. Even if I wasn’t in the activity, I would still go. I am so looking forward to it. My upperclassmen friends have been talking about Le-Laf since forever. I now understand their excitement. I cannot wait for our football team to destroy Lafayette.” – Alexis Tellez, ’20

“I’ll be missing the game since I’m going home this weekend. I’m going to the Bed Races, but I don’t really care for the game.” – Julius Wibisono, ’20

“I would’ve been more compelled to attend the game if it had been at home. I regret not getting a ticket as I had tier 1 standing. I’ll definitely go next year, everyone’s so pumped for the game. The banners are great! I’m in crew and we made a banner saying ‘Lafayette skips leg day.’ We also beat them at every single event for crew. I really want to see the bed races, I’m excited.” – Julia Pietruszka, ’20
