n.— «“And now a brief word about the essential but disreputable—moosing and liquor,” a freshman advice column penned in the Phoenix in September 1959 reads. While the art of “moosing” (roughly translated as “messing around”) at Swat may deserve its own analysis, it is clear that who’s drinking, where and what has been an issue for at least half a century.» —“Alcohol policy past, present: a look under the microscope” by Jack Keefe in Swarthmore College The Phoenix (Swarthmore, Pennsylvania) Feb. 22, 2007.
