I think the site was from 1985, because when I double-sessioned in 08, it was its 23rd year.--Kukulkan 08:56, 17 August 2008 (PDT)


By the way, if you throw a Frisbee at one at the proper time, they will leap through the air. KяYP did this once at 06.2. It was actually kinda funny. - User:Fred3426

There was at least one squirrel at 08.2 that was covered in red blotches and missing about half of its fur. Also, I once saw two campus police chasing a squirrel. Apparently, it was "sick". --LordZeebmork 10:38, 21 August 2008 (PDT)

Fixing SAR's page up

It seems like the page needs a lot of updating. Anyone who's been there longer (I only did 09.1) want to help fix it up? -User:PHS_Philip

Yeah, can somebody fix that right side panel? It has a bunch of songs under high holy canon that really are not high holy. High holy canon is just American pie, stairway, forever young, possibly nightswimming and (for sesh1) ill make a man out of you. The rest of those songs are just Canon.


I'm changing it, but am I ceriously the only person to notice we have 2 dorms sections?

Our article doesn't suck

At what point do we get rid of the 'your article sucks, (from your friends at Lancaster)' box at the top of the page?

Things we could improve

Ok, our article's not perfect.

Things I see we can improve that I wouldn't feel confident improving: -Canon (I'd rather someone with a more intimate knowledge of tradition did this) -The food (section works as is, but we could talk about all the different locations in the dining and stuff. If nobody else does, I'm bringing a notebook to band camp solely to give the dining hall the article it deserves).


The canon list here seems inaccurate and conflicts with the other list, so having consulted others, it seems to be that the current list (for SAR.2 at least) is:

High Holy Canon

American Pie - Don McLean

Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin

Forever Young - Alphaville

Nightswimming - R.E.M.

Other Canon

Cotton-Eyed Joe - Rednex

Tunak Tunak Tun - Daler Mendhi

Istanbul (Not Constantinople) - They Might Be Giants

Sandstorm - Darude

It's the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine) - R.E.M.

Blister in the Sun - The Violent Femmes

Brown Eyed Girl - Van Morrison

Birdhouse in Your Soul - They Might Be Giants

The Time Warp - Rocky Horror Picture Show

Build Me Up, Buttercup - The Foundations

Baby Got Back - Sir Mix-a-Lot

Buddy Holly - Weezer

American Music - The Violent Femmes

Let it Be - The Beatles

Hallelujah - Rufus Wainwright

Cecilia - Simon & Garfunkel

Smells like Teen Spirit - Nirvana

Bohemian Rhapsody – Queen

My Sharona - The Knack

Ghostbusters - Ray Parker Jr.

Everytime we Touch – Cascada

Love Shack – The B-52’s

Dragostea Din Tei - O-Zone

Pokemon Theme

So yeah, should I fix the list then? Ginger 18:01, 20 August 2010 (PDT)

Airport Question

Does anyone know which airport SAR uses for CTY students? --Honoraryhugalujah

You would fly in to the Albany International Airport. --Luke Farrell

Thank you! --Honoraryhugalujah

Student List

Should we start a student list in the page? --IrisGooGoo (talk) 07:14, 6 August 2018 (EDT)

Hey Luke - I saw that you added the student list to the page; as of right now it is a little hard to read. I don't know if it was your intent to format it that way (in order to save space?) but it is a bit overwhelming to look at. --Anouk

I'm going to put it in alphabetical order now.


I was wondering who the Empress for 18.2 was and if anyone could direct me to her userpage? I believe I found it yesterday but I cannot relocate it. --Anouk

I believe one of them was Amy Hidalgo and the other was Ella Parker, I think Amy was first Empress but I'm not sure --IrisGooGoo (talk) 15:49, 8 August 2018 (EDT)

Thank you! I was looking for Amy's userpage. One of my friends (Sophie, I think you know her actually) mentioned the Saratoga song in a phone call last night and I remembered coming across the lyrics to it but couldn't find them again. --Anouk
