An exciting Frost Week wrapped up last night in the city of London.
Frost Week, an annual student tradition, was an unofficial week of celebration in the city. The week commemorated the return of students back to school. Many bars and clubs across Richmond Row held events and parties for Western and Fanshawe students, and invited famous acts like Adventure Club and Don Diablo to their venues.
Parker Christie, a fourth year Western student, is the co-owner and manager of Cruel London. Cruel is a lifestyles and promotions company, and one of many which hosted events last week. According to Christie, the week was filled with parties “… at every bar, and every social club has a different party, as well.” He adds that the week is geared to upper year University and College students, who relish their reunion with their friends.
While there were increased festivities, there was not an increase in disruption or crime. London Police Constable Sandasha Bough comments that they “did not notice a greater amount of complains or call-ins.” Constable Bough adds, “You (students) can still have fun – as long as that fun is done responsibly.”
Frost Week is a play on the term Frosh Week or Orientation Week, which refers to the first week of school in September. This year, Frost Week ran from Monday, January 4th to Saturday, January 9th.
