What’s Up, Kutztown?

By Ashley Fries

What’s up, Kutztown? The same thing that is always up: the sky or ceiling. Walking around campus, one can hear it said hundreds of times a week. “What’s up” or even its shortened version, “Sup.” The term “What’s Up” is dead. Stop using it.

What is up is the sky, clouds, birds and ceilings when indoors. That is it. That is what has been up since the moment the expression was created. It never changes. So why are people still using it?

Unfortunately, I do not have an answer for that. I do not understand why. It is an annoying expression that makes no logical sense. In my opinion, it should never have been created or lasted as long as it has. It is time for it to die.

Therefore, I suggest a new term. No longer shall we say, “What’s Up” or “Sup,” but instead, “What are you doing?” or “How are you/things?” It is very simple and much more logical.

It will take time to kill ”What’s up” but I know that we can do it!   What do you say, Kutztown? What are you doing?”
