Flunk Day Coordinator is Maddie Tucker, deputy coordinator is Charlie Tucker. Planners are Kathryn Allee and Caitlin Edelmuth. Keep an eye on them.

Wait, to clarify: Charlie Tucker the dog?

^ Yes, Charlie Tucker the dog, i.e. the goodest boy with the wiggliest tail. Keep an eye on him! He's super friendly and likely to spill a secret to somebody!

^ Link pic?

^ Charlie's Instagram secured: https://www.instagram.com/charlietheaquarius/

^ you're the goat thank you - cute ass dog

^^^ Wait who is the faculty advisor for Flunk Day this year? Isn't Andrew gone?

Raina Johnson is this year's faculty advisor! She works in Campus Life some days and at home during others, so keep a close eye out for her

Larry Welch says no promises have been made with regards to avoiding lab days, but notes that Flunk Days planners tend to pick days based on their majors: STEM MWF, Humanities TTh. Much to consider!

Heard from Caitlin that the Flunk Day theme this year is not going to be revealed until Flunk Day itself- and then saw her carrying around a sign that said "What the Flunk" which IS FOR FLUNK DAY PREDICTIONS! CAITLIN WILL BE IN THE GIZ AT TIMES, TAKING BETS ON WHEN FLUNK DAY WILL BE FOR CHARITY! Also overheard that performers may already be booked? And that Megan Thee Stallion is out of our price range. Unfortunate. Or is that misleading? Maybe she is already on her way???

News is circulating that Maddie is leaving Knox for the weekend. Could this just be an Easter trip? Or could it be a secret Flunk Day mission?

GUYS!!!! I was snooping on Spotify and found a Flunk Day playlist on Caitlin's account!!! Who do you think the performer is?? https://open.spotify.com/playlist/2FFmCQB5lDTLHUBJogRpiY?si=HcWnn64iQ2OVqzDzS9rlaQ


Just taking this moment to say - EVERYONE PLEASE CONTINUE TO FOLLOW COVID-19 SAFETY GUIDELINES! Maddie has confirmed that the planners have all met with Abby Putnam and Anne Ehrlich and if the quarandorms are already looking full when Flunk Day comes around, the guidelines of the day itself will be much stricter than they have to be! Do your part, wear your mask, get the Fauci Ouchie when you can, and keep each other healthy! <-which all y'all should be eligible now, so get yer mf jab STAT. We all want those sweet sweet antibodies coursing through our veins for The Flunk


Friar email sent out to senior dist list today. Could this be a sign that Flunk is coming even sooner than we think? Tomorrow perhaps?

Y'ALL Maddie just confirmed that bookings are already in the works!!! Does this mean that we're looking at a late April/first week of May Flunk? Who is the headlining artist? Will there be traditional inflatable games for the in-person component? So many questions

^ they're gonna need a lot of disinfectant wipes to clean that shit lol

... did anyone else notice that the story highlights posted about Maddie, Kathryn, Caitlyn, and Charlie on the UB instagram each have a sort of 90's themed backdrop? Am I reading into things or could this be H U G E?

Vaccine eligibility expands to everyone in Illinois. If all students got vaccinated on this day (IF) Knox would be fully immunized by May 24! Vaccination is important to consider in flunk plans.

^ notably, a lot of people were able to get vaccinated earlier because of working for the college (or going to Peoria since the rules are less strict there I guess?), so hopefully we'll be able to get a lot of campus vaccinated ASAP!

First day of Ramadan, this will probably not be Flunk Day!

April 14, 2021 (Wed)

Day of Dialogue. Probably not Flunk Day.

I heard whispers through the grape vine that they were trying to get a dunk tank again. If this is true will be obvious when Flunk day is.

Maddie seen chatting with Dean McLean outside of his office at approximately 3:05 PM. Seems like some flunky business might be going on

Flunk before today statistically and realistically very unlikely. Pre-18th flunks are rare, plus COVID.

A notable Flunk-related staff person (forgot who lol) is out this coming week, so probably no flunk. Unless they're messing with us??

Caitlin told me today that she'll be changing her appearance in the lead-up to Flunk Day. I believe this to be a fucking lie. Do not trust Caitlin.

Flunk Day 2019

Personally, I'm betting we won't have an April flunk this year- with Caitlin basically running all the Earth Month events, I think (if only for her sanity) we'll probably have a May flunk.

Caitlin has gone insane, maybe this year's Flunk is a part of Earth Month? What's more sustainable than a 99 year long tradition?

Can confirm that Caitlin is extra stressed lately, maybe its earth day planning or maybe it's other shenanigans coming up soon...

^ should note that I'm pretty sure Caitlin doesn't actually know the date as a planner?? I could be wrong though

^ Caitlin here. I share a brain with maddie, who knows what I know??

Jonathan Powers always says Flunk Day will be May 9th, and since Jonathan Powers is always right, why not a Sunday Flunk Day for a change? - According to Deana Nichols, May 5th through 9th will not be Flunk Day. On a related note, come see The How and the Why on these dates!

Flunk Day 2016

My current bet as a senior is this day, later flunk to put more distance on Covid, and a Monday cause Monday flunks are the dream. -Matt Cagle

^ I would be pro-Monday flunk but I want Sherwood to be able to have his playwriting/screenwriting workshop. Like I'm sure it's not in the calculation, but if Sherwood is wronged, I will cry. -Sarah W

^^ if Monday flunk happens we should all zoom into class just wasted and read plays -Morghan

4/5 WVKC staff meeting today, we think flunk will be this week. No intel, just passion.

Okay so I have a theory. This date also happens to be Maddie's 21st - could the team be planning a big birthday bash of a Flunk? To even further add to the greatness of a Monday Flunk???

May 11, 2021 (Tue)

i think flunk day is either today or tomorrow because everyone who went to the farm bureau for the knox vaccine days are getting their second vaccine on April 29th and May 11th and 12th are pretty close to the 2 week mark after the vaccine

Ramadan is over on May 12, this would be a great day for Flunk Day!

According to Sarah Wallenfelsz's math, a flunk hasn't been during Ramadan during any of the dates we know of, but it also hasn't had many opportunities to.

May 14, 2021 (Fri)

Matt Cagle won't stop saying Friday Flunk is happening. Hasn't happened historically, but what is 2021 if not a year of change?
