If you’re an underclassman, you’re most likely terrified of getting a MIP from the GVPD or Ottawa. What’s similar to getting a MIP you ask? Mary Idema Pew Library. This isn’t even an exaggeration. Just take a look at this nicely drawn Venn Diagram to show you exactly what we mean.
Honestly, the closest similarity between the two is that they’re both shortened to MIP, pretty cool right?
Besides that, GVPD is always involved, whether you’re the nerd who’s still cramming in homework at 1:50 a.m. and you happen to catch a glimpse of a wandering officer or you’re hopping the back fence of Trio, something’s about to go down.
Also, who the heck goes to Mary Idema Pew if you’re over the age of FRESHMAN?? You’re probably an undergrad who’s tired of trying to study in the same prison cell that your roommate is trying to watch YouTube videos in. Similarly, if you get an MIP, it’s because you’re underage.
Don’t let this fool you, though. Just because Mary Idema Pew is a home for exiled freshies, that doesn’t mean things don’t get crazy. If the party is loud, shit’s about to go down. Same thing at Mary Idema Pew! If you’re loud and reckless, you’re going to get kicked out onto the cold, dark streets of Allendale where GVPD will snag you like Laker Bowls on Fridays.
On the contrary, libraries are cool and have cool books and tea shops *cough* Argo Tea *cough* but Minor in Possessions are NOT. There are snacks at MIP, and that’s even cooler, but don’t expect snacks when you’re doing community service for a MIP!
We hope next time you visit Mary Idema Pew (and not the next time you get an MIP) you remember this helpful diagram! Remember Lakers, libraries are cool; MIP’s are not.
