Sophomore Who Regularly Sleeps Through 11 AM Class Happily Wakes Up At 6 AM To Drink
WALSH HALL — Connor Fitzgerald, a local sophomore who regularly skips his 11:00 AM Globalization class, happily woke up yesterday at 6:00 AM in anticipation of Marathon Monday.
“This is the earliest I’ve seen him awake all semester,” said roommate David Brady (LSOE ’20). “He literally never goes to our class.”
Fitzgerald’s earliest class starts at 11:00 AM, but he regularly feels too tired to walk five minutes to Devlin from his quad in Walsh and sit and listen to a lecture that cost his parents about $500. Fitzgerald stated that he woke up early at “Booze O’Clock,” because “Marathon Monday resets his internal clock.”
“Typically, I won’t roll out of bed until 11:30. I haven’t even made it to breakfast since the second week of September, but on Marathon Monday, I’m up and dressed and ready to go to Lower as soon as it opens to buy a coffee that I can put Bailey’s in,” said Fitzgerald.
Fitzgerald looks forward to the yearly drinking extravaganza that is Marathon Monday. However this year, he plans on waking up on hour later than he normally does. Fitzgerald said that his waking up at 5 AM last year was “a bit too early” and that he “really needs to get those 4 hours in” before waddling over to Foster Street.
