I would sneak into Disneyland and hack the system to get unlimited FastPasses for all the rides. I might also take some free merch while I’m at it. Fans everywhere deserve as much after Disney+ prices went up. 


Lizz B. Anne

Unalive Dryden.


Dryden Penn

I would pull a Robin Hood-style heist on Jeff Bezos. Baldy needs to pay. Plus, a Purge day would let me escape the fashion police for wearing exclusively Lincoln green. 


Tia M. Zee

I’d force the DMV to give me a license. I’d go to a dealership with Lamborghinis, steal a super fast Lamborghini, race it down the highway but probably crash it. After I most likely crash from being a Speed Racer, I’d steal a humble hybrid because Purge day isn’t going to be everyday and gas prices have been the true thieves this whole time.

I would hack into Canvas and delete all of my upcoming assignments so that I could focus on my extracurricular activities instead of school. Doing homework would eventually pay my bills down the road, but I am broke and need money now. 


Staff Ryder

I would commit all the crimes on campus because I’m in charge of writing the police reports and I can pin the blame on someone else when the purge is over.
