An E-mail admonishing students at Northwestern's Kellogg School of Management for a wild night last month at Chicago's Field Museum has been making the rounds and does not paint a pretty picture of what transpired that night, the Daily Northwestern reports. The booze-fueled school event made the local news at the time (the Sun-Times headline read: "Kellogg's Toasted Flakes") and the message from a Kellogg Student Association official outlines why the school is no longer invited to the museum without high school prom treatment, i.e. Breathalyzers, high security, and chaperones:
The Field Museum made the decision to shut the bar at CIM Ball down early because of student behavior, NOT because they ran out of alcohol. A few examples of such behavior included:- Students were throwing things at a historic artifact: Sue, the Tyrannosaurus Rex, which The Field Museum purchased for over $8.3 million- Students were vomiting on themselves and on the Field Museum Floors- Students were spitting at people- Students attempted to smuggle in a substantial amount of alcohol (large trash bins full of bottles and cans and flasks)- Students passed out in high-traffic areas- Students arrived at an open bar event already too overserved.
