Putting this under the first day. If it's your first flunk day then here are some fun facts!

- Flunk day is never on a Friday because they don't want to give us a 3 day weekend. This is why every event in late spring term pre flunk day is always Friday.

- When looking at flunk day data, disregard 2020.

- If there is a big academic event that is already planned (ex: senior awards, capstone presentation events, etc.) flunk day will most likely not happen then. Faculty can submit days they don't want flunk day to be, and these big events are already taken into consideration when planning. Do note as well there can be big faculty meeting/events on some days that students are just simply not aware of that can affect what day flunk day could be.

- Flunk day is always tomorrow

Tomorrow is Flunk Day

I have confirmed the Flunk Day planning committee. Flunk Day coordinator is senior Maddie Tucker. Deputy coordinator is Charlie Tucker. Planners are seniors Kathryn Allee, John Brent, Tori Johnson, Sarah Wallenfelsz, and junior Myrissa Le. Keep a close eye on them.

Sarah Wallenfelsz is one of the planners??? This is gonna be a great flunk day!

heard kathryn and tori talking in the smc atrium today about food...i wonder if a plan is already underway?

Overheard that Maddie is in the Campus Life office this afternoon, is she finalizing details for a Monday (03/28) Flunk?

FOLLOW UP FOLLOW UP FOLLOW UP: I saw Maddie and Dean McLean leaving a meeting with Dr. Barker at approximately 4 PM. What if this year's Flunk IS super early?

Btw folks - friar scares will NOT be a thing this year! Confirmed both in talking with Maddie and Sarah making a statement in senate last term

Spotted Maddie going into the Campus Life Office and walking with Dean McLean down to Taylor Lounge at approximately 8:15 PM last night. Flunk next week?

Happy Ramadan! See you all at our May flunk

April 4, 2022 (Mon)[edit]

make sure y'all get your guesses in for when flunk day will be!! it's time to fight for your pride

April 5, 2022 (Tue)[edit]

Flunk day is tomorrow...like probably not but not enough people are saying it these days and i need that fix in my life

With all of this rain are we ready for another mud pit

April 6, 2022 (Wed)[edit]

since we're getting closer and closer it feels like a good time to remind everyone that the Flunk Day planning committee are just people with full plates and an entire schedule to worry about and aggravating them with questions like "when's Flunk Day?" and "why did you plan it for a rainy day??" every other day is super exhausting and not helpful at all. We cannot have a repeat of the tormenting they got last year, Maddie and everyone else on the team (sorry I don't remember everyone on there) deserve better so fckn give them that!

So excited to get the traditional Flunk Day head in the Lincoln Chair, counting down the days till the ceremonial sloppy toppy

Who’s excited for Flunkposium this year?! Does anyone know who’s organizing it??

Posters that say "Flunk Day is tomorrow ... or is it?" have been put all around campus, saying that there's something coming this Friday?

Friday flunk incoming??

It's going to be this day because this is the one day I don't want it to happen.

There once was a Flunk that put to rest

All previous Flunks of twenty years past

The tales flew wild, the term dipped down

Oh drink, my Knoxians, drink (hey)

Soon may the 100th Flunk come

To bring us vodka, PBRs and rum

One day, when the Flunking is done

We'll take our shirts and go!

^^^ Happy countdown

April 26, 2022 (Tue)[edit]

Given how late flunk day was last year, I'm guessing we're going earlier this year to compensate. This day seems like a decent guess. Don't @ me.

This is Day of Dialogue - not flunk day

April 27, 2022 (Wed)[edit]

Stout listed on his syllabus for Econ 303 that the Flunk Day window is April 27-May 11, so nothing before this date.

Friar email sent out tonight!

Last day of Ramadan, it probably won't be before this

May 2, 2022 (Mon)[edit]

Flunk Day 2018 Eid al-Fitr ends this evening

Doubling down, I had a dream last night about Flunk Day being on this day

i think everyone thinks it’s week 8 but it might actually be week 7 (this week)

May 3, 2022 (Tue)[edit]

Surprise surprise it’s may 3rd flunk

Baseball game listed for today

^^ this is the last weekday sports event for the year

feels like a fake out

May 4, 2022 (Wed)[edit]

Flunk Day 2017

Star Wars Flunk

Dean McLean's babies turn one on this day - birthday flunk for the twins?

I heard Andy Gibbons talking about how much setup he needed to do for an event on this day…could it be?

This day could be too close to inauguration activities to work

Baseball plays Augustana this day. But here's the catch it is on our schedule online without a time. It's not on Augustana's team schedule. The only game on their schedule is the one on the 3rd.

This is also the only sunny day this week

Physio does presentations every friday, however, this week is the only one in the schedule we don't have one. Does Nick Gidmark know when flunk is?????

Baseball game mysteriously canceled???

Trucks in walmart - There are always trucks at Walmart. The flunk day trucks will be at the hotels.

Its tomorrow i feel it in my balls…

Flunk day planners spotted at walmart buying major carts of snacks AND JUGS at 9 pm!!!

^its wayyyy too late for them to be stocking up if its 5/4

I was with sarah wallenfelsz at 9PM exactly she was on campus

^omg....I'm my own independent human being separate from kathryn/the rest of the committee....thats crazy dude ^if i (maggie garrett) am dead tomorrow yall know who did it

It was Kathryn Allee

  • ["The Night After Flunk Day" Poem was put here for some reason.]*

^^wrong poem?? ^i like the idea this presents of flunk day having already happened and everybody just missed it somehow

people on yikyak claiming to find trucks but refusing to post pictures lol

today is the RA new/old training. as I have first hand experience with how hard it is to reschedule stuff I think there is no flunk

Flunk Day trucks SPOTTED at Green Oaks Biological Field Station!!!!!!! First groaks flunk??? Could be big..........................................

Rock wall spotted near monmouth!!!!!CONFIRMED

pics or??

The Incident[edit]


^ Greatest flunk scare in history, but a flunk scare nonetheless. Well played to whoever did it

^^ now I actually have to go to my 8am class :(

Yikyak has said that the culprit has been caught. Any guesses on who did it?

I heard that it was a freshman working with a couple of CS major seniors???

11:26 PM: NO sign of trucks, climbing walls, or even a raptor. Flunk day is nowhere in sight

May 5, 2022 (Thu)[edit]

Don't quote me on this but this seems like a good day for flunk day idk. The vibes are good for a may 5th flunk methinks

they just sent out an email with a million things happening thursday for inaguration i feel like it is not today

please for the love of god let it not be on this day

hear me out they moved president inauguration to the orpheum so that it’s fine if drunk people trash campus or ruin the stage or something on thursday flunk

- 12:08 AM: I seriously doubt it's going to be today, but hey, maybe there will be another =incident=.

- 2:10 PM: yeah, hahaha called it. Although, the lawns are mowed and I have seen it raining a lot, so maybe the first flunk friday since 1957 or something will be tomorrow?

May 6, 2022 (Fri)[edit]

Friday Flunk is so unlikely but we can dream

President inauguration. No Flunk lol

^^ poly sci majors would riot

not the real president baby

Time Log[edit]

2:10 am - A guy was totally witnessed walking down a street.

May 8, 2022 (Sat)[edit]

'Twas the TRUE night before Flunk Day 
When good children lay
awaiting the bedlam
of pots and pans,
from friars who sing
of the good tidings they bring:
News of booze
Stories of glory
A broadcast! At long last!
The day has arrived
and the students have survived
a full year of college.
Thus, UB has acknowledged
that this is cause for celebration,
for excessive laughter and jubilation.
So, go ahead, go wild!
Run around like a child!
Make friends with strangers,
keep one another out of danger.
Relax and tan on the lawn,
or party 'til the new dawn.
And maybe get just a little drunk
because today, my friends, is a day to flunk!

May 9, 2022 (Mon)[edit]

Jonathan Powers always says Flunk Day will be May 9th, and since Jonathan Powers is always right, obviously Flunk Day will be May 9.

This is such a solid day actually jpow might be right

Apparently this is the week of FSL week so maybe not this week? Hopefully earlier <-----does FSL week really matter that much? I don't think it'll be on Monday but I'm willing to bet that it's this week

I don't think we're going to have two Monday Flunks in a row

Holi Festival postponed this week until next weekend, week 7 flunk?

Statistically this is definitely it. Idk my tarot said so.

nothing of importance is scheduled this day, this is the one

could def be today... after inaguration but still time to recover before homecoming

God it better be a Monday Wednesday or Friday, I work at 8am those days I don't need a TT flunk making me show up to work hungover <----it's not gonna be friday lol

I feel strongly about today

person on YikYak (camera icon) claiming to know for sure its today

no sports listed for this whole week

The person who did the Incident (see above) was told they have to meet with admin on Monday. Why would they schedule this meeting if that’s the real flunk? <----OR they INTENTIONALLY scheduled the meeting for flunk day to mess with their plans

  • SHOCKING DEVELOPMENT: MarQuita Barker's (VP of Student Development) Calender has a massive event book ALL day on Monday. I'm not saying Flunk Day confirmed, but...FLUNK DAY CONFIRMED. PROOF: https://imgur.com/a/bMFLsw9
  • DUDE, that could be ANYONE'S calendar.
  • Has is occurred to you that you could see MarQuita's calendar, yourself, to double check, you clown?

I'm a Monday May 9th Flunk Truther now.

There is no way in ~HELL~ it's today

I heard that it will for sure be this week. Monday seems like the most likely.

Admission has visitors. Flunk denied

^^Admissions actually WILL tour prospies on flunk day! They just make the admission counselors do it ;)


TRUCKS AT AMERICINN - FLUNK DAY CONFIRMED - the zipline is there ! ! !

proof: https://i.imgur.com/B588Rdq.jpeg


any other trucks? not saying i don't believe you but usually there's more than that - there were more, the usual Penske rental trucks they get. There were 2 of those.

Isn't that last year's photo?????????

Someone posted a pic of them in front of the truck! https://twitter.com/streetcarsrule/status/1523492714183991297?s=20&t=BAr-uECfadkA5HdKeMoJNQ

A few trucks don’t confirm anything. They could have just gotten here early. We need more info.

UB Operations coordinator JUST brought home a puppy??? Monday flunk confirmed

'Twas the night before Flunk Day and all through the campus

Not a Knoxie was stirring, not even a SMC rat

The vodka were placed by the door with care

In the hopes that friars soon would be there

The first years were nestled all snug in their beds

While visions of flunk danced in their heads.

Marquita in her kerchief and I in my cap

Had just settled down for a short spring nap.

When out on the Old Main lawn there arose such a clatter

I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter

Away to the window I flew with a flash

Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash

The moon on the breast of the freshly mown grass

Gave a luster of mid-day to objects below.

When what to my wondering eyes should appear

But a Penske truck and nets and gear to spare

With a little old driver so lively and rad

Well I knew in a moment, it must be President McGad

More rapid than eagles, his coursers they came

And he whistled and he shouted and he called them by name

"On Maddie, on Sarah, on Kathryn and John

On Tori, on Myrissa, on Charlie and Blaze!

To the top of the porch, to the top of the wall

Now, dash away, dash away, dash away all!"

As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly

When they meet to an obstacle mount to the sky

So up to the rooftop the coursers they flew

With a sleigh full of drugs and alcohol and McGadney too.

And then in a twinkling, I heard on the roof

The dancing, the laughing of each planner

As I drew in my head and was turning around

Down the bell tower McGadney came with a bound

He was dressed all in purple from his head to his foot

And his clothes were all tarnished with grass stains and dirt

A bundle of shots he had flung on his back

And I laughed when I saw him in spite of myself

A wink of his eye and a twist of his head

Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread

He spoke not a word but went straight to his work

And set up the first sunny flunk in four years

And giving a nod up the chimney he rose

He sprang to his sleigh, and to his team gave a whistle

And away they all flew like the down of a thistle

But I heard him exclaim as he drove out of sight

"Merry Flunk to all and to all..goodnight

Flunk Day 2016


A Flunk day on Maddie's b-day? Best way to celebrate is always with the whole school ;)

A birthday Flunk for Maddie? Yes I'm down for this one

Tuesday flunk plz - this post was made by the TT 2s 5s gang

Not today flunk pls - this post was made by the MWF 2, 3, 4 gang

There's a fulbright information session on this day, which seems like they wouldn't put Flunk Day here. It's reschedulable, sure, but still seems important ENOUGH to be considered. ^ there was a Fulbright event before and an upcoming one close by.

Spanish translation class has interviews this day. Would suck if they had to miss Flunk for it.

There are also interviews for a new director of counseling so it doesn’t seem likely that it’s today…

May 11, 2022 (Wed)[edit]

This was the first Flunk (1922) so high possibility of it being this day

^^ second this

^^ i third this, this seems like something maddie would do

^^^ i love this idea -- but idk bc admin picks the day and we know they're not always thoughtful...

I'm so confident about this date, I'll etch it onto my gravestone right now.

they were looking at flunk day stuff in the archives in the winter i wouldn’t be surprised if it was on this day!

I've heard through the grapevine that this day is Flunk Day

^ can confirm! I asked Maddie about this day and she seemed very suspicious when she answered with "maybe ... maybe not"

they don't know lol they're fucking with you

^ i'm pretty sure they know the date

^Flunk Day Planner here. We know the date. Maddie has known the date for months.

Ask Charlie Tucker, he knows and is willing to share.

^ I asked Charlie if Flunk Day was May 11th and his little tail was extra wiggly. Flunk Day confirmed!

Blessings in a Backpack Debate[edit]

Blessings Blues & Brews is on this day. It is a huge event for Union Board and Blessings. I'm sure they wouldn't plan this event the same day as flunk day.

Blessings in a Backpack and UB don’t know the date though 👀 theoretically any event could be ok Flunk Day, admin only considers really big college wide events when they set the schedule

^^^this. baseball got shafted a couple years back, they were at an away game during Flunk

People can submit events to be considered though when they decide Flunk Day and Joel Estes said that they asked in advance since it's such a big event for them

The BiB event is more for upperclassmen and townies (21+) so its not going to change flunk day

100th Anniversary of Flunk Day. Flunk Day pt 2???

May 12, 2022 (Thu)[edit]

I called this one in late Fall term :)

I refuse to see another year of Thursday truthers

I genuinely think this makes the most sense. This is the 100th and so I'm predicting that they'll want lots of alumni engagement and what better time to do it than the beginning of homecoming weekend????

absolutely 5/12. pls i wanna see the alumni visiting for homecoming drunk off their asses

no. this is our flunk day. get the alumni out of here.

No way it's entering the next week though

homecoming does need some set up time, and they can't exactly get started during flunk day

we have educational consultants coming this day. for sure no flunk

SUPER doubt it, they want to maintain a respectable image for homecoming and a campus of drunk students is risky...

if it's a Thursday flunk we need to keep stockpiling. Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday party baby!!!!

May 13, 2022 (Fri)[edit]

Homecoming weekend so it might be this day or is definitely not

cum see Bright Half Life in Studio Theatre! doors open @7, show starts @7:30

educational consultants visiting, no Flunk

yeah its not gonna be a homecoming Flunk besties sorry :/

if its this late I s2g I'm asking for my money back. i don't care if I'm doing 5th year free this would be unforgivable

May 14, 2022 (Sat)[edit]

Why is no one talking about the 16th?

Flunk Day 2021

If it gets anywhere NEAR this date, there will be riots. <—- do you mean pussy riots?!?!?! <-- im already rioting

some admin speculating its this on 17th
