Mountain Day is
a surprise break from classes. The president chooses a beautiful
fall day and announces the holiday by ringing the college
bells. A picnic lunch provided by the college can be
carried to the students' various outdoor activities on campus
or to nearby parks. (See menu page for changes in the dining schedule.)
Classes and academic appointments scheduled
before 7 p.m. are canceled on Mountain Day. Evening classes,
films, lectures and other events will be held as planned.
Today, for Mountain
Day 2008, the
Staff Council will host the second ice cream and pie celebration
for staff members. Hours for the event have
been extended, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., outside Pierce Hall.
Stop by for a piece of pie a la mode.
The first Mountain
Day was held in 1877.
