This past weekend, Brown hosted it’s annual conference for high school students, Brown University Simulation of the United Nations (BUSUN). At our weekly Sunday night meeting, Blog was dismayed to discover that our classroom had been used for BUSUN – that is, until we opened and started reading some of the notes that had been left all over the floor.
For those of you who
weren’t nerds in high school don’t know, MUN enforces a strict parliamentary procedure, which means no talking out loud. Instead, delegates from each country pass notes to each other during the conferences. While the majority of the notes we found were, indeed, related to the UN debates at hand, us Bloggers didn’t graduate from high school THAT long ago. A few years ago we, too, were raging balls of hormones and sexual frustration, ready to flirt, arrange parties and exchange snapchat handles through unregulated note-passing at the first opportunity. And, if memory serves correctly, MUN conferences offered the perfect opportunity to do all of the above.
So, we performed a bit of pretty impressive investigative journalism (we dug through some high schoolers’ trash) to bring you the best notes left behind from Brown MUN’s conference this weekend:
Good to know that the chair was not joking around.
