I fear that what I was trying to say during the interview was not paraphrased correctly in this article. When asked what my thoughts were on St. Patrick’s Day, what I was try­ing to get across was the fact that while it is a good holiday to promote Irish awareness, it is often used as an excuse to get drunk. I wish that my quote had been double checked with me before running it. The article’s context reads that it is my sorority’s founder’s day therefore, we use that and St. Patrick’s Day as a reason to get drunk. This is not the case at all. We are a dry sorority on campus meaning our events are about love for the organization and each other. We spend our founder’s day reaffirming what the organization means to us and spending time with each other as sisters.
